Getting around could not be any easier when you are in Lexington whether it is by rail, open roads, air, taxi or bus.
If your choice is rail, freight carriers such as Winston-Salem Southbound and Norfolk Southern serve Lexington and passenger access via Amtrak is only 15 minutes away. Lexington is scheduled to receive passenger rail service by 2017.
If you prefer the open roads, there are numerous options. Interstate 85 passes directly through Lexington as does US Highway 52 (future I-285), US Highway 64, US Highway 29-70, and NC Highway 8.
