Scooters

A truly Bermudian way to get around: motor scooters and pedal bikes (bicycles) are ideal for exploring our Island's winding streets and to stop in a “lay-by” to take in the ocean views.

Scooter riders and cyclists of all levels can make the most of our favourite modes of transport. Fear not, our speed limit is never set above 20mph / 32kph. Just remember, we drive on the left!

Motor Scooter requirements

Renting a scooter requires three things:

  • You must be at least 18 years of age or older
  • You must wear a helmet
  • You must drive on the left-hand side of the road

The cycle liveries are happy to provide a delivery and pick-up service at your hotel.

On your bike!

We love our pedal bikes. Our many long, twisting roads make cycling our Island particularly rewarding. Just remember, if you ask to rent a "bike" or "bicycle", most Bermudians will assume you want a motor scooter, because we call them "pedal bikes"! In addition, we now have hybrid electric bicycles that offer all the advantages of a regular bicycle including fun, exercise and zero emissions, as well as an electric motor that provides help getting up the steep hills in Bermuda.
Rentals range between US$30 and $35 per day.

Buses

Our island's buses are frequent, plentiful and service most areas of interest. You cannot miss them, as they are painted pink with blue stripes.

With 11 bus routes and 14 bus zones, each one covering about 2MI / 3.2KM, we have the entire island covered. Most buses leave from the Central Terminal on Washington Street, next to our City Hall in Hamilton.

  • Bus passengers must have exact change in coins. Ask about bus tokens or books of bus tickets at your hotel or the bus terminal
  • During the morning and evening commute, our buses are packed with locals. It is best to plan your trip during a less busy time of day
  • To find a bus stop, look for a pole with a pink top (for rides inbound to Hamilton), or a blue top (for rides outbound of Hamilton)

Along with getting you to your destination, many taxi drivers are excellent tour guides, eager to share stories behind our landmarks and customs...just ask.

For a short, relaxing excursion on our island, a horse-drawn carriage ride is ideal. Popular trips? A circular route west of the City of Hamilton; a ride through history in the Town of St. George or the Royal Naval Dockyard; a spectacular ride along South Road. Carriages pulled by one horse can carry up to four passengers. But in some cases, two horses may draw a carriage. These carriages will accommodate a larger group for an additional surcharge.
