FAQ - Public transportation
If you're on a whym in a destination that doesn't require a rental car that's great! That means there are lots of ways to get around.
When traveling without a rental car, your best option for long distances is a ride share app. We at Whym recommend using Lyft, but there are other options too like Uber, Via, Curb, etc. To use these, download them from the App or Play store on your device, set up an account & input your preferred payment method. You will be able to just put in the name or address of where you want to go and the car will come to pick you up based on your current location.
If you prefer to have a traditional taxi or don’t want to download an app, connect with the concierge at your hotel to get help with what is the best company to call and how to get in touch with them.
