    airport info

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    the biggest airport in the state is in little rock. there are smaller commercial airports around the state, in fort smith, for instance, but i am not sure where else. several cities have small noncommercial airports for charters or personal planes. nearby large airports in neighboring states are tulsa, oklahoma, and memphis, tennessee.

    you can get a shuttle bus between the little rock airport and the memphis airport
    ("bette's bus," 800/752-8745; also try 501/821-7797 or 501/223-3338 for limousine service) and, i think, between the little rock airport and downtown hot springs (501/821-7797 or 501/223-3338 for limousine service). better check on these for sure before you count on them. i am guessing that the airport management office for little rock (501/372-3439) is probably the best place to start looking for this information.

    Little Rock Union Station

    Union Station Little Rock Arkansas

    The first thing you will see when the train enters Union Station in Little Rock, Arkansas is the dome of the state capitol building.

    The station itself has been built in 1921 after the destruction of the previous station in 1921. Ripleys believe it or not had this station listed once as largest railroad station served by just on railroad.

  • Rent a car!

    by petersnick93 Written Jul 9, 2012

    After living here for 18 years I can say there's really no way to get around without a car. The buses are almost always late and the lines are confusing with few opportunities for transfers. There's a trolley downtown but it goes 10mph and is only good if you don't feel like walking across the river. As for getting to Little Rock it's best to fly or drive. The train is horribly inconvenient (it only comes at midnight and 3am) and there's no ground transportation at the train station. Little Rock is the biggest city here and it tries hard in many respects but its transportation definitely falls short.

    You'd better have a car.

    It's a lot of country here. If you like big city life, you are in the wrong place. The closest you will get to city life is on McCain Mall area in North Little Rock and or Shacklford in West Little Rock. Black people beware of racism when looking for a job or going to Cabot and other areas outside city limits. Don't act on it, just try to ignore it to avoid trouble.

    public transportation situation

    by susiemargare Updated Aug 24, 2005

    the public transportation system in little rock (buses) is extensive but extremely unwieldy and time-consuming. as a practical matter, it is almost impossible to get anywhere in or around the city without a car.

    This is the plane I rent when I'm in town. It's a great way to see Little Rock and Arkansas from above!

    I rent it from North Little Rock airport.
