Several limousine services are readily available in the Batavia area. Door-to-door Dial-A-Ride service provides needed transportation for senior citizens and those with disabilities.
The area's corporate and private aircraft are based at either of two nearby airports, DuPage County Airport and Aurora Municipal Airport.
