TAXIS

The airport in Bermuda has a fleet of taxis that will take you to your hotel. No reservations are required and waiting times are usually not very long unless flights are delayed or several flights land at the same time, which is often the case around lunchtime.  Taxi rates are set by law.

Taxi stands (known as “ranks” in Bermuda) can be found at various locations, including Front Street and Church Street in Hamilton, King’s Square in St George.  Most major hotels also have taxi stands. Hotels and many restaurants will be happy to call taxis for tourists.

Some taxis  provide guided tours of Bermuda.  A blue flag on the hood of the taxicab denotes a qualified tour guide.

Taxis are very expensive in Bermuda.  Good to  use them if you are  going out dressed up,  to a restaurant. 

Since tourists are not allowed to rent cars in Bermuda, taxis and scooters are the primary means of transportation on the island.

FERRIES

Bermuda has an excellent ferry system.  From the ferry terminal in Hamilton,  which is on Front Street opposite the "Bird Cage" (every local knows where that is) from there,  you can take what amounts to a pleasure cruise to Somerset,  The Dock Yard and they even have a high speed ferry which runs from April until November out to St.  George.  And on these large ferries,  you can even bring your moped (for a fee of course)   The also have some smaller ferries that stop at some of the smaller warfs all around Hamilton Harbour.  You can purchase a transportation pass there,  and at any of the bus terminals,  they do not accept cash on board.  They have an excellent bus system too.  But if you can get there by ferry, Locals recommend the ferry,  it is calming,  and the scenery is spectacular!
