American transportation options will vary considerably depending on where you decide to study. Transport differs from big cities of several million people to small towns many miles away from the next town.
There are a number of transportation options available in the US. If you are travelling from city to city, you may choose to drive your own car, truck or motorcycle if you have one. Be sure to check the regulations regarding foreign driver's license recognition in the US before you arrive in the States. You may also choose to buy a ticket for a long-distance bus, train, or a domestic flight. If you are travelling around the coasts or near larger lakes, ferries may make up part of your transportation options.
Local transportation includes public transit - buses, trains or subway-systems - as well as personal means of transportation such as a bicycle or your own vehicle. Public transit options will differ from city to city. Daily and monthly transit-passes are often available, and your educational institution may have an agreement with local public transit to give you a discount on passes for buses or other local transit options.
If you wish to drive your own vehicle, you will probably need to get an American driver's license, as well as American automobile insurance. You can also investigate the option of an International Driver's License.
