You have an option to book for one-way or round trip transfers. You can get both private or group (shared) transfers. The rates are on a per person basis for group transfers and much lower than private transfers. However in group transfers, the van or minibus used may drop other passengers in their respective hotels along the way and therefore can take longer time to reach your destination. 
While the rates would vary depending on your destination, an approximate rate for a 2-way airport transfer to and from Hamilton in group (shared van or minibus) is about $30 per person. Some hotels like Pompano Beach club have special arrangements through shuttle service companies who offer special rates for transfers to/from such hotels. 
There are also taxis available at the airport outside the arrival hall. All taxis in Bermuda use metered fare. Bus service is also available, but you can not board a bus with luggage.

Taxi Service at the airport

There is a first-in-line service available for taxis at the airport which is probably the most common mode of transfer service availed by the tourists. Just outside the arrivals there is a queuing area for taxis and you can hop into one available next. The smaller taxis can take up to 4 passengers while the larger ones can take up to 6 passengers. 
One-way transfer fare (on a smaller taxi) to the south shore area (like Southampton) will be around $55 and takes about 45 minutes to reach. Fare from airport to Hamilton City is about $45, to Sandys is about $70, to St. George's Town is about $17. Note that the usual fare is applicable between Monday through Saturday and from 6am to midnight. Otherwise a 25% additional charge is added. It's a normal practice to tip the driver (about 15%). 

Public Buses at Bermuda Airport

Bermuda International Airport is located at St. George's Parish at the eastern end of the island. There are several public buses that operate between the Airport and Hamilton city quite frequently and at regular intervals. The Bus routes for the airport are #1, 3, 10 and 11. 
Check out Bermuda Bus Services to know about the routes, schedules and fares. 
NOTE: You won't get bus tickets, tokens or passes from the Airport. One is not allowed to carry luggage like a suitcase in the public buses either. So in general public bus is not a transfer option from/to the airport for the passengers travelling by flight. These buses are mostly used by the airport staffs. One can however pay in cash (in exact change) and board a bus from the airport provided one is carrying no heavy luggage.

Sandy (May 2021) 
My husband and I will arrive by air in Bermuda. We need to get to the Cruise ship port.  What is the best transportation and cost?  We have luggage with us. 
Raj ( May 2021 
In the current Covid situation, you need to take a taxi or a private shuttle from the airport. In low traffic conditions, the small taxi fare would be around $75 (on a weekday between 6am to midnight) + $1 for each piece of luggage + 15% tips. The fare on Sundays and public holidays will be 25% higher. The distance from the airport to Royal Naval Dockyard (main cruise port at the west end) is 25 miles and will take little over an hour. 
Manoj Gupta (February 2020) 
Hi, we are a family of 5 and would need transfer from the airport to Southampton Fairmont on Feb 15, returning on Feb 20th. What would be the cost and how do we book? 
Raj ( February 2020 
You can take a larger taxi that can take up to 6 passengers. The approximate one-way cost from Bermuda airport to Fairmont Southampton would be $70 (+15% tips). You can also book a private van transfer (from an operator like CEO Transport) that has a capacity of 6 passengers and can hold ample luggage. It costs $100 one-way to Fairmont Southampton. You can go to their website and book online. Shared shuttle transfers are also available, but they would cost the same for five of you. 
Amanda  (June 2019) 
I will be on a cruise to Bermuda the first week of July but when my cruise leaves on Friday I am going to be catching a flight home. I know I can take the ferry from the port to St George. What is the easiest/safest/ most reliable way to get from the ferry in St George to the airport? 
Raj ( June 2019 
You should take a taxi from St. George to the Airport. There are buses too, but they won't let you board with luggage. 
Cindy (April 2019) 
Thanks for the response. By luggage, do you mean a backpack?  We are only there for 3 1/2 days so we were taking backpacks each and maybe one small bag for cosmetics (no bigger then a purse). 
Raj ( April 2019 
Backpack is okay as long as it can sit on your lap without obstructing others.... that's the rule. But bus drivers do make discretion.... usually in favor of tourists. 
Cindy (April 2019) 
I read on your website that exact change is necessary to ride the bus, however, when I followed the link for airport buses, it says you can pay in exact fare (i.e.$5.00 bill).  So I come into the airport and grab the bus to Hamilton, can I pay in a $5.00 US bill?  Or do I need to get $5 worth of quarters to pay? Can I buy the pass or the 15 tickets at the bus station in Hamilton? Thank you 
Raj ( April 2019 
Yes... bus drivers these days usually take $5 bills (notes) although officially it's still the coins. But before grabbing the bus at the airport or wherever, ensure that you have no 'luggage'... then neither bills or coins would work. Once you are in Hamilton, you can get both passes or book of tickets at Hamilton bus or ferry terminals. 
Scott (December 2018) 
Raj, Thank you for providing this valuable information. My family is arriving for Christmas next week, and I am confused on the buses. We are avid backpackers and have travel packs that fit overhead in luggage bins on the plane and easily on our laps (like when we took the tube from Heathrow into London). But they are larger than a day pack. We can have exact change and our packs may sit on our laps - will we be allowed to board the bus or will they refuse us service? We're staying just outside Hamilton and can walk to our flat from the bus depot, but because there are 5 of us, it would be significantly less expensive to take the bus as compared to a taxi. My confusion in reading the forum is it states as long as the bag fits on your lap, you can take it (which they do), but that the bus drivers refuse you to bring luggage on. Thanks for any insight or help you can offer. 
Raj ( December 2018 
Hi Scott, there is no hard and fast norm when it comes to the size of a bag you can take in a bus. Laptop bags, briefcases or small backpacks are okay. The whole idea is that it should not eat into extra space and fellow passengers should not be discomforted. Eventually it depends on the discretion of the driver... one driver could be more liberal than the other. Since there are five of you with a bag each, there could be a chance of refusal. In that case you can try the next bus. 
Herbert Prandl (August 2018) 
Hello Raj, I saw a recent tourist review of Beeline Transport and it stated that Beeline Transport offered a $36 (per person) round trip from the airport to Watford Bridge. Beeline Transport's website does not really work and there is no contact (e-mail) option available. Is Beeline transport still operational and do they have a working website or e-mail address? Thanks again Raj and we are looking forward to hearing from you. 
Raj ( August 2018 
Hello Herbert, Beeline Transport is one of the oldest operators but not quite internet/email savvy. You can try to contact them over phone (441/293-0303). However for airport transfers a good option is CEO-Transport. They charge $25 one-way per person to Cambridge Beaches on shared vehicle (up to 10 persons). 
Here is their website: 
Linda French (March 2018) 
My husband and I will have one backpack, one small suitcase that can easily fit on a lap, my small pocket book and my husband's camera case (about the size of a padded lunch bag) when we come on Mar 12th. I have read that bags have to fit on a lap and/or fit under the bus seat. Is that current and correct information? 
Raj ( March 2018 
Yes, that is correct. 
Nadia (November 2017) 
Hi Raj, I require clarification on bus tickets as I am getting conflicting messages. We would like to take the bus from the airport to Hamilton. We do not have luggage only a knapsack. We do not have coins.  Can we pay by bill, that is, can we give a $10 bill for the both of us to travel to Hamilton? Also, do the busses run regularly from the airport? Thanks for you help. 
Raj ( November 2017 
Hi, if your knapsack is small enough to sit on your lap while riding the bus, then you can certainly board the bus from the airport. There are several bus routes (#1, 3, 10, 11) that operate between Hamilton and St. George with a stop at the airport. So yes you can get regular buses from airport to Hamilton during the day time. Officially only coins are accepted when you pay by cash. This is because the machines can only recognize coins. However it is also known that many bus drivers also accept dollar bills if it matches the exact fare. So if you have only dollar bills, ask the driver before boarding... in all likelihood he would let you board. 
Tony R. (February 2016) 
Hi Raj, arriving in late March, staying Monday thru Friday, know the bus schedules well but wondering if the bus driver will take us if we have backpacks that may be bulky. Also would you know the price between the airport and Hamilton terminal. If we buy a three day pass Monday afternoon would the pass be good till Thursday? Thank you for your help. Wonderful site. 
Raj ( February 2016 
Quite unlikely that bus drivers will allow bulky backpacks. 14-zone bus fare is applicable between Airport and Hamilton (small taxi fare will be around $43). Your 3-day pass will expire on Wednesday midnight if you start using it from Monday... a day here is not counted as 24 hours. 
Karola Rondinella (June 2015) 
Arriving 6 people Sunday July 12 2015 how much would a taxi charge from the airport to the Fairmont Southampton. I saw that there is a surcharge on Sundays. Also how much would CEO transport shared shuttle charge. Thank you for all the information. 
Raj ( June 2015 
Hi, normal fare for a 7 passenger taxi between airport and Fairmont Southampton would be about $58 plus 15% tips (add 50% surcharge for Sunday). One-way CEO shuttle fare to the hotel is $15 per person. 
Andrea (February 2015) 
Hi, I have really been enjoying all of the information on your website. We will be in Bermuda next Saturday. Do you have any idea approximately how much a taxi would charge for a ride from the airport to Sandy's Parish? I have been contacting airport shuttle services and the cheapest I have been quoted is $60. Would this be more or less than a taxi? Thanks 
Raj ( February 2015 
Hi, taxi fare will depend on your exact location in Sandys. For example, airport to Somerset or Cambridge Beaches Resort would be about $70 without tips, all the way up to the dockyard will be around $75 without tips. 
Bob Wenz (May 2012) 
It's very easy to understand why bus passes are no longer available at the airport. By doing so the tourist bureau has helped to support the more costly taxi service. This is no longer the tourist friendly island that I remember for the past 35 years. 
Raj ( May 2012 
Hello Bob, Understand your view. I too am surprised that such service has been withdrawn. The buses continue to operate to and from the airport though, and one can always avail a bus from the airport by paying the fare in cash, and later buy a pass from some other place. Probably the government is discouraging the tourists to take a bus on arrival at the airport because one can't carry luggage in the buses anyway. Passengers arriving by flight are likely to have suitcases and large bags, which are not allowed in the public buses.
