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
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 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.
