Getting around in Oxford, MS

The public transportation system, in Oxford, is known as O-U-T, which offers 2 routes that run north-south and east-west and meet at the Square.


The best way to get around in Oxford is considered to be by foot, due to the historical heritage of the city and the wide range of attractions, most of them, conveniently located at a walking distance, between each other.


The second best way to get around in Oxford is considered to be by car. Once you find a parking spot on campus, you won’t have to worry about your car and you can go pretty much to any major area in the city by foot, from there. The same rule applies downtown. Once you get used to navigate the square and the surrounding one-way streets, you can find a parking space by searching the back alleys.


However, if you decide to drive your way around, while staying in Oxford, be sure not to park illegally, because you will get an inexpensive ticket. Also, be sure not to drink and drive, because the cops are vigilant, and you won’t get away easy for doing so.
