Getting Around Bermuda
21-Square-Miles. Endless Ways to Explore.
Once you arrive, getting around the island is easy, safe, and pretty fun, too. Options include renting an electric vehicle, taxis & private operators, buses and ferries. There are plenty of ways to explore Bermuda by land and by sea.
One of the most fun ways to explore Bermuda is to rent an electric car (there are no conventional car rentals available on the island). This option is available to visitors age 18 and up with a valid driver’s license.
Public transportation is safe, convenient and available year round via Bermuda’s Buses and ferries. A handy tip to avoid needing exact change: get a Transportation Pass, available from one day up to seven days of unlimited use on the island's buses and ferries. Passes are sold at the Central Terminal on Washington Street and the Visitor Service Centres in Royal Naval Dockyard and the Town of St. George, as well as at other authorised outlets.
- Buses: With 11 bus routes and 14 bus zones, buses are frequent and plentiful, and they service most areas of interest. They’re easy to spot as they're painted Bermuda pink with blue stripes. Most buses leave from the Central Terminal on Washington Street, next to City Hall in Hamilton. Download a copy of the bus schedule.
- Ferries: Four public ferry routes offer an on-the-water alternative for getting around Bermuda. All ferries depart from the Ferry Terminal on Front Street in Hamilton. Cash is not accepted, so be sure to have your transportation pass, ticket or token in hand. For complete route, schedule and fare information, download the schedule or visit the Bermuda Ferry Website.
Pedal your way around the island by bicycle, e-bike, or motorized scooter (moped) and discover Bermuda’s winding streets and coastal roads. Pay attention to the rules of the road: Bermudians drive on the left, and the speed limit never exceeds 20mph/32kph. Helmets are always required for scooters and bicycles, and motorized scooters are available to visitors 18 and over.
Bicycle rental rates typically range between $30-35USD per day. Cycle liveries are happy to arrange delivery and pick-up service at your hotel.

Taxis can usually be found outside Bermuda’s larger hotels, near the airport or on the streets of the City of Hamilton, the Town of St. George or the Royal Naval Dockyard. There’s no trick to getting one – just raise your hand and one will drive right up, or arrange pick-up times with your hotel’s front desk. Bermuda’s taxi drivers are great guides, too. No one knows the best destinations better than they do!
