Transport in and around Montauk?

Hi we will be visiting Montauk next month but would rather not hire a car? Just wondering what the public transport system is like for getting around the area? Thanks!

A car is ideal for visiting anywhere on Long Island. However, in Montauk it is possible to not have a car if you're planning on staying put. There are busses that run to the Point Lighthouse, Montauk Dock and Long Island Railroad. The S94 and the 10C busses run through so check times at the visitor center. If you want to explore outside of Montauk, the Long Island Rail Road will take you to elsewhere in the Hamptons. Too tired to walk to other downtown areas, there are always cabs waiting at the stations. Hope this helps and enjoy Montauk.

Yes thanks that exactly what I was hoping to hear! We are just there really to chill out and relax but would like to see a little of the local area too without having to drive so that sounds just grand. Thanks for replying.

Hi,

Do you know of any car rental places in Montauk? We are taking the train from NYC to avoid the 4th of July rush, but would like to have a car during our stay.

There is an Avis, Hurtz and an Enterprise Rent a Car in East Hampton which is the third to last stop on the LIRR Montauk line . Avis is located on North Main St, the other two on Daniels Hole Rd. Avis is a fairly short walk from the East Hampton train station.
