Ashland is located just off I-5 in Southern Oregon. The roads in and around Ashland are safe and well-maintained, and the best way to get around is to have your own car. If you are flying into the area, there are several rental companies right at the airport, including Avis, Budget, Hertz, and National.
If you prefer not to have a car in town, you will have to rely on taxis or the bus. You will not be able to hail a taxi from the street, but you can call ahead to several different companies to pre-arrange a pickup. Some options include Cascade Airport Shuttle (by far the best option) at 541-488-1998 ... or Yellow Cab (541-482-3065), Classic Taxi (541-885-8294), Metro Taxi (541-773-6665), or Valley Cab (54-1479-6700).
The bus system is operated by the Rogue Valley Transportation District, and offers service on weekdays only. The regular fare is $1, or you can buy a day-pass for $3 or a month-pass for $38.
