Dover is a city in Delaware.

Get in[edit]

The main arteries for Dover are rt 1, US 13, and US 113. There is also rt 8 that can be used as a main access point to US 50 and the Bay Bridge. Dover also has the Dover Air Force base that is a major outlet for most US Air Force planes that are leaving crossing the ocean.

Get around[edit]

Since Dover is not an extremely busy city, driving a car is practical for getting around most of the city. However if a car is not available then the Dart Bus transit system is a good idea since it has many stops around town. There are also taxis available, although they do not generally ride around town looking for fares so it would be best to call the dispatch to send one. These are some of the cab companies in the Dover area:


City Cab Taxi (302)734-TAXI, [1]City Cab Taxi has been proudly serving the state of Delaware and the Dover area for over 65 years.They offer taxi rides 24 hours a day and 365 days a year.


George's Transportation Service (302)223-5000, [2]George's Transportation Service is a van service that provides transport for up to six people plus luggage.
