Transportation from OKC
Flights to Oklahoma City land at Will Rogers World Airport (OKC), just 6 miles southwest of downtown. Thanks to the plethora of hotels nearby, you'll be unpacking your cowboy boots in no time at all! One way to get around is by renting a car when you book your airfare to Oklahoma City. You’ll pick up your car right at the airport, and before you know it Greater Oklahoma is before you and you’ve got nothing but a sense of adventure and the open road ahead.
The city's public bus system, Embark, doesn't serve the airport, but you can pick it up elsewhere in the city. Get to a station via taxi, or take a hotel shuttle to your downtown accommodation and then hop on public transit to go sightseeing. You can also rent a private shuttle or limo to get from the airport to your hotel.
