Bermuda Airport Shuttles
There are several airport shuttle operators in Bermuda who provide pickup and drop services. The services are provided for individuals, families and large groups. You can prearrange the shuttle service by calling them up and making advance reservations.
You have an option to book for one-way or round trip transfers. The rates are on a per person basis for group transfers and 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 may take slightly longer time.
While the rates would vary depending on your destination, an approximate rate for a 2-way transfer to & from Hamilton for group transfer is about $30. Some hotels like Pompano Beach club have special arrangements through shuttle service companies who offer special rates for transfers to/from such hotels. You will find such information in their websites.

One-way transfer fare 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 $43, to Sandys is about $70, to St. George's Town is about $17.

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 & 11. Check out Bermuda Bus Services
to know about the schedules and other information.
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.

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 (bermuda-attractions.com) March 2018
Yes, that is correct.

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 (bermuda-attractions.com) 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.

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 (bermuda-attractions.com) 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 (bermuda-attractions.com) 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 (bermuda-attractions.com) 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.

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 (bermuda-attractions.com) 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.
