Cologne has excellent public transport made up of subway, tram and bus lines. Single tickets and multi-day passes are available online and from ticket offices and vending machines at most stops. Taxis are also available, as are ride-sharing app services. Driving in central Cologne can be a bit of a nightmare, with confusing streets and many areas open only to residents. Fortunately, the city centre is fairly compact and most areas can be comfortably reached on foot or by bicycle.
The airport is located eight miles (12km) southeast of Cologne and 10 miles (16km) north of Bonn.
