Approaching the City
For many years, metropolitan Dover was a bottleneck, especially on the weekends, with visitors traveling to and from the Atlantic beaches. Relief arrived with the opening of a $100 million bypass around the city on Route 1. Carolina Trailways offers bus service to the city. The closest Amtrak rail service is available at Wilmington and the major airport close to Dover is at Philadelphia.
Traveling in the City
U.S. highways 13 and 113 run north and south in Dover and connect to Delaware Route 1, and state highway 8 is the main east-and-west passage. Central Delaware Transit offers a state-run, fixed-route bus system that operates around the city. Historic attractions around the Green are accessible on foot.
