How is the public transportation system in Aiken?
Not great. As a small city, Aiken is neither large nor dense enough to support a viable public transportation system. Being a small enough town in terms of area, it's possible to walk and bike to certain places, but the roads are rural and not terribly conducive to this type of transportation. In addition, hot summers and cold winters can make non-car transportation unpleasant. All of these factors make for a very car-oriented town.
