There are a variety of options for connecting with rail stations including walking, bicycle, pedicab, streetcar, light rail, metro, car rental, etc. Ideally, the rail station is located in the middle of downtown where many destinations are within a short walk or bike ride away.
Sophisticated new city bike share programs serve the last mile best by making fast door-to-door connections easy with the flexibility to pick up, or drop off a bike almost anywhere in the city as needed.
