Fort Lauderdale Transport
The easiest way to get around Fort Lauderdale is by car. The city is set up on a grid and is easy to navigate. Hiring a bicycle is also a popular option and a bike is sufficient to cover downtown Fort Lauderdale and the beach. There are bicycle lanes in some of the main tourist areas. Those driving or cycling should note, however, that the east side of Fort Lauderdale, between downtown and the beach, is crisscrossed with canals, which can only be crossed by bridge, making a good map vital.
Broward County Transit (BCT) provides bus service in Fort Lauderdale, although tourists sometimes find the service frustratingly slow or limited. A regular one-way bus fare is $1.75. More usefully, the Sun Trolley offers a free Downtown Link, which loops around the heart of Fort Lauderdale every 20 minutes on weekdays between 7.30am and 6pm.
