Getting around Jupiter

The local airport is Palm Beach International Airport (PBI), which is about a 25-minute drive to Jupiter. Use our Expedia tool below to find flight, hotel, and rental car options.


Amy says that visitors need to rent a car because the city is not walkable. However, parking is a breeze. For the best rental car offers, visit Avis, Budget, or Hertz.

Jupiter offers the Brightline Train, but it is better used when traveling to other South Florida cities. Uber and Lyft are excellent ways to get around.

When you only need a car for a couple of hours, you can rent by the hour with Zipcar. Join now to get $25 loaded into your account.
