This tend to vary depending upon who you are, what you are doing and where you are doing it. In military and frontier contexts typically dedicated shuttlecraft equipped with fusion engines with an air-breathing mode. Highly populated worlds push civil traffic onto space elevator systems for reasons of safety and security.

Race: Mar Kan. Partially upright, hexapedal, omnivores from a cool high gravity world resembling to human eyes nothing so much as a giant furry pear set on four stubby and rather stiff legs. The eyes and mouth are set at the top of the highly flexible 'neck', the final pair of double jointed manipulating limbs sit on opposite sides of the body just below the neck where they fold against the body when at rest.

Question: What is the typical range of settlement for a species, ie how far from a homeworld are you likely to find settlements? Does human settlement follow this pattern?
