Transportation

Roadway Network

North Augusta’s transportation network includes two interstate highways, two federal highways, several state primary routes, numerous state secondary roads and a substantial mileage of city streets.

Air Transportation

Two airports serve the Augusta metropolitan area, Augusta Regional Airport at Bush Field and Daniel field, both in Augusta. Commercial carriers, including Delta and American Airlines, operate from Augusta Regional Airport, approximately 8 miles from downtown North Augusta. Service is provided to Atlanta’s Hartsfield International and Charlotte-Douglas International Airports. Daniel Field is a general aviation facility located in the center of the City of Augusta. The Columbia, SC and Atlanta, GA Airports, located approximately 65miles east and 150 miles west of North Augusta respectively, are served by more carriers on a more frequent schedule than Augusta Regional and airfares are often less expensive than from Augusta. As a result, the Atlanta and Columbia Airports are utilized by a substantial number of North Augusta air travelers.

Public Transit

Aiken County’s “Best Friend Express” provides daily bus service between and within Aiken and North Augusta. Service is provided by a fleet of passenger buses.

Bicycle and Pedestrian Facilities

The greatest asset to North Augusta’s bike and pedestrian network is the Greeneway. Currently 13 miles long, it connects neighborhoods to public facilities, downtown, the riverfront, and the13th Street Bridge, which connects to Augusta. For those who live close, it can operate as a legitimate commuting route to downtown Augusta.
