Top tips for renting a car in Bakersfield

  • Though California does feature a fair number of trains, there really is no better way to get around than by private vehicle in the Golden State. Bakersfield is no exception to that; in fact, within the city itself there are only buses available for public transport. So drivers looking to get around town will have long waits in store for them if they don’t have a vehicle on hand.
  • Visitors arriving at Meadows Field Airport looking to rent a car will find the rental car counters in the main terminal’s Arrivals Hall.
  • Bakersfield is close to numerous mountain pass roads and, as beautiful as they are, they can also be a tad narrow and steep at times. Occasionally, drivers will find that there isn’t enough room for both cars to go by each other at the same time. In moments like this, as uncommon as they may be, the vehicle that is facing downhill must yield to the uphill-facing driver and back up (if necessary) to allow the other car to pass.
  • While Bakersfield does not have the most severe rush hour traffic, its relative proximity to the Greater Los Angeles Area can make traffic going in that direction slow down during peak hours. On most weekdays, the morning rush hour typically goes from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and in the afternoon it goes from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. One of the main roads to avoid during rush hour is CA-58, as it bisects Bakersfield and often bears the brunt of the daily rush hour traffic.
