There is a car rental facility at the baggage claim in the main terminal where all of the larger rental firms are represented. The airport is expected to complete
a new dedicated rental car pavilion adjacent to the terminal in 2014.
Taxis are available curbside both metered and unmetered. However, maximum rates are set.
CARTA, the regional mass transit system, serves the airport with three routes that operate seven days a week from 6:00 a.m. to midnight.
- CARTA Express Route 4, also known as North Area Shuttle (NASH) Express is an express service to downtown Charleston with stops at the North Charleston
Visitors Center and at the Tanger Outlets. Total trip time from the airport to downtown is usually 25–35 minutes.
- CARTA Route 11 is a local service that connects the airport to downtown Charleston with several stops along Dorchester Road and Meeting Street in
North Charleston. Total trip time from the airport to downtown is usually 50–55 minutes.
- CARTA Route 105, also known as the North Area Shuttle (NASH) Collector is a free service that connects the airport with certain destinations in North
Charleston, including the visitors center, the convention center complex (including the North Charleston Coliseum and performing arts center), and some
of North Charleston's neighborhoods and business districts.
As of 2014, one-way fares are $3.00 for the Route 4 express service and $1.75 for the Route 11 service.
