You won’t need wheels to explore Toledo’s old town, but buses do circulate through it and connect with outlying suburbs. Handy buses run between Plaza de Zocodover and the bus station (bus 5) and train station (buses 5 and 6).
A fun way to see Toledo is on the Zocotren (adult/child €3.90/1.70; 11am-9pm), a 50-minute nonstop train trip. It leaves Zocodover on the hour from October to March, every half-hour April to September. There are also night rides (after 9pm, depending on demand) year-round.
A remonte peatonal (escalator; 7am-10pm Mon-Fri, 8am-10pm Sat & Sun), which starts near the Puerta de Alfonso VI and ends near the Monasterio de Santo Domingo El Antiguo, is another way you can minimise the steep uphill climb.
There are taxi ranks just south of Plaza de Zocodover and at the bus station, or you can call a taxi (925 25 50 50).
