Moving Around Bermuda
Bermuda is a small place, but you'll need to plan ahead to get around efficiently
Transportation

Public Transportation

Today public transportation consists primarily of air-conditioned pink & blue buses and ferries that operate at frequent intervals to most of the visitor destinations throughout Bermuda.

The ferry service operates the waters between Hamilton, Paget and Warwick, or from Hamilton to Ireland Island and to St. George's. Both the bus and ferry service are inexpensive and convenient.

Bus tokens and transportation passes are honoured on buses and ferries. One-day, two-day, three-day, four-day, and seven-day bus passes may be obtained at the Central Bus Terminal on Washington Street in Hamilton, at many hotels and guest houses, the Visitors Information Centres and the Ferry Terminal in Hamilton. Tokens and tickets are also available at these locations. Children age 5 and under ride free! Please note that the bus operators do not accept paper currency and exact change is required.

Buses are also available for group charter.

Private Transportation

Private transportation in Bermuda is available from taxis, scooter rentals, pedal cycles, the Bermuda Railways Train in Dockyard, Hamilton and St. George's; as well as 19-foot whaler boat rentals for water exploration. A relic of Bermuda's past is the fringe-topped horse-drawn carriage and there are a few still in service taking visitors on tours of Hamilton and surrounding neighborhoods. They are still a popular mode of transportation at weddings to and from the church.


Transportation for the Disabled

Bermuda recognizes the importance of having sufficient transportation services for the disabled person and we want you to be able to enjoy Bermuda as much as anyone.
