From Kings Wharfs will I be able to travel by bus to Hamilton, and see most of Bermuda, if so what is the fee for bus travel? What buses would one take to get an overview of the islands. Does a bus leave from the Wharf?

Hi, There are two bus routes from the dockyard to Hamilton - bus #7 and 8. The bus stop is close to Kings Wharf pier (3-4 minutes walk). Take bus #7 goes past Sandys parish (where you will go over the smallest drawbridge in the world called Somerset Bridge and see Ely's Harbor), then by the beautiful south shore beaches on Southampton and Warwick parishes. From Hamilton you should take another bus (#10, or 11) for St George which is the historic town and the former capital of Bermuda. You will see the north shore as you go towards St George. After seeing the attractions in St George, take a ferry back to Dockyard (note the timings of the Orange route ferry ... only few services). You can then get some flavor of Bermuda.
Bus fare is $4.50 if you pay exact fare in cash (only change), $4.0 if you buy tokens from Visitors Information Centers at the dockyard. Transfers in buses are free. Tokens can also be used in Ferries. You can alternatively buy a day pass which can be used both in bus and ferry.

Hi, Last bus from Hamilton to dockyard is at 10:45pm (route #8) all days of the week. The previous one is at 9:15pm (route #7) all days except Sunday. Average run time 62 minutes.

Hi - When we leave St George to take a bus to Hamilton - do we catch the #10 or #11 bus? Or, are they the same - which bus takes us closest to the town? Then, when we leave Hamilton to head back to the Dockyards, is it easier/faster to take the ferry of a bus? Many thanks!

Hi, All buses (except bus #6 from St. George) finally terminate at the central bus terminal at Hamilton located near City Hall. From St. George, bus #10 and 11 will reach Hamilton faster compared to #1 an 3. But you can take any of them to reach Hamilton City although they follow different routes.
From Hamilton, take the ferry (Blue Route) from the Ferry terminal on Front Street. It's a direct ferry to the dockyard and takes only 20 minutes compared to a bus which takes about an hour. Regards,

We will be visiting your beautiful island in July. This is my question. What time is the last bus out of Hamilton going to St. George's via Middle Road. Thanks
Raj (bermuda-attractions.com, June 2013)
Hi, Bus #3 takes the middle road and goes out of Hamilton via Devils Hole, Crystal Caves, Grotto Bay etc to St George (there are some services which go only up to Grotto Bay). On a week day, the last service to St George is at 4:45pm, on Saturdays at 6:15pm and on Sundays at 5:30pm. Regards,

Where does the 6 bus start in St. George, going to Turtle Beach? Is it near where the ferry comes in? Is Turtle Beach on the same stretch of beach as Clearwater? I love Turtle Beach, an escape from the cruise passengers!
Raj (bermuda-attractions.com, June 2013)
Hi, The main bus terminal of St. George is at the western end of Duke of York Street and just north of Somer's Wharf. While it is not next to the Ferry Stop, it is within walking distance. Bus #6 starts from here. Turtle Bay Beach is adjacent to Clearwater beach in St. Davids. But note that all services of bus #6 will not go up to Clearwater beach (some will). Ask the driver. Regards,

I am visiting again but this time I will have two small children with me and will need a double stroller for our day trips. How easy is it to travel the island on bus with a double stroller? we are worried about not being able to bring it and having to carry two small children for most of the day. Thanks

Please note that strollers, suitcases, golf clubs or any kind of heavy luggage are not permitted in Bermuda buses. Regards,
As a first time visitor to your beautiful island I suggest that you post route numbers and timetables at all your bus shelters. Then visitors can feel confident in using the service. This will also take congestion off the roads as more people that take the bus the better for everyone. Back in the UK, timetables and routes are displayed at all stops and you can also get text messages sent telling you when the next bus is due and if it is going to be late! Best wishes to the bus service!
There are no zone marking that one can verify how many zones they have traveled. Most bus drivers really don't know. This is confusing not only to Bermudians, it is EXTREMELY confusing to the visitors.
I love the buses, but we used to be able to get them at the airport. That was a huge convenience. Now if we arrive on a weekend there is no place to get the passes. Please make them available for the tourists when they arrive at the airport.
Thank you. (Oct 18, 2011)
