It is important to note that visitors to Bermuda are not allowed to rent cars. There are, however, several transport options and as the city of Hamilton and Bermuda itself are not large, this is hardly a problem. A bus service operates in Hamilton and links it to other major points in Bermuda, with inbound service stops marked with pink-topped poles and outbound service stops marked with blue-topped poles. If transferring to another bus, be sure to ask the first driver for a transfer to avoid paying again. Transfers are valid for half an hour.
Ferries are another popular way to enjoy the sights of Hamilton and its surrounds, and scooters and mopeds are also available for hire. Walking and cycling are also excellent ways to get around. A traditional means of transport, and a fun way to enjoy the city, is on a horse drawn carriage ride. One does need to look past the fact that, in Hamilton, the horses wear diapers!
