With so much to see and do in New Bern, you'll definitely want to park it and get out and look around. Downtown offers on-street parking with metered spaces surrounding City Hall. Additional free public parking is available at the Farmer's Market (except on Tuesdays from April-December & Saturdays year-round when the market is open), on South Craven Street and next to the Firemen's Museum. See map.
Planning to stay a while? The City also offers leased parking. Contact the Business Office at (252)639-2750 to apply.
New Bern's Coastal Carolina Regional Airport is just two miles from downtown and offers connecting flights to Charlotte & Atlanta through Delta & U.S. Airways Express. Car rental is available at the airport or through local providers and several hotels offer shuttle service. Private transportation is also available through local cab companies and through CARTS Public Transportation (special emphasis on elderly and/or handicapped transportation). Or, let someone else do the driving and enjoy thruway bus service to eastern North Carolina with Amtrak. These transportation resources will help you navigate New Bern and travel like a local!
