The two main forms of public transportation on the Greek island of Mykonos are busses and taxis.  Both have their distinct advantages as well as disadvantages.  

            The busses on the island service the majority of well-known beaches, the widely visited cities and towns and, from 2009, the airport. There are two main bus stations in Mykonos town, the North Station and the South Station.  The North Station is located near the local telephone company building, and services the following areas:  Ano Mera, Kalolivadi, Tourlos, Agios Stefanos, Elia, and Kalafatis.  The South Station is located in the Square Fabrica and services the following areas:  Platis Gialos, Psarou, Paraga, Paradise, Ornos, Agios Ioannis, and the Airport.  During the tourist season, busses run regularly scheduled routes as late as 1am with the exception of the airport service, which stops around 9.30pm.  Busses still run during the low season, but the service is less frequent, and they don’t run as late. 

             Taxis are a great way to get further away from the major tourist areas, and are a more comfortable means of travel.  They are however more expensive.  The best place to get a taxi in Mykonos town is at the Taxi Square, which is located in the city center.

             Alternative means for transportation include hiring cars, mopeds or motorbikes.
