Location and Transportation

Location and Transportation

The greater Clemson area is nestled within northwest South Carolina, straddling the counties of Pickens, Anderson and Oconee. The area rests at the foothills of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, less than one hour from Greenville. This ideal location not only affords it much in the way of recreation, but also unmatched accessibility to the region’s efficient transportation network.

In addition to a number of local thoroughfares, Clemson and its surrounding communities are well served by U.S. Routes 123 and 76; State Routes 28, 88, 93 and 133; and I-85 (to the south) and I-185 (to the east). Clemson Area Transit supplies convenient, affordable public bus transit to the region, as does Greyhound, which operates out of Anderson and connects with CAT. Amtrak commuter rail runs out of a Clemson station, as well, with service between New York and New Orleans. In addition, the Clemson area hosts the Oconee County Regional Airport, a general aviation facility. The closest commercial airport is the Greenville/Spartanburg International Airport, which is reachable within approximately 45 minutes of Clemson.

Location is certainly a great asset for the Clemson area, and the excellent transportation options ensure travelers are able to get in, out and around the region with ease.
