Getting Around Freeport

Getting Around

Getting around Freeport, Grand Bahama is easy and surprisingly affordable, in part because there are various methods of transportation. Choose between rental cars, motor scooters, buses and taxis – even water taxis. Bicycles, however, are not as easily available to rent. Many of the upscale hotels and resorts offer their own transportation to their guests.

By Auto Taxi:

Auto Taxis in Freeport are easy to find and are usually quicker than driving on your own. The downside is that many cabs are in poor condition, so your ride in an auto taxi might be somewhat on the bumpy side. In addition, many streets of Freeport are also in poor condition.
