Regularly scheduled buses operate at frequent intervals to most of the destinations throughout Bermuda which VTers would find of interest. Bus stops are identified by pink and blue poles. Poles that are pink on top indicate service inbound to the City of Hamilton. Poles that are blue on top indicate service outbound from the City of Hamilton. The best time to travel by bus is between 9:00 am - 3:00 pm and after 5:30 pm when the Bermudians are not using it getting to and from Work.

The fare can be paid in cash (the driver takes change only no bills) on the bus and you need the exact change. The adult fare for a 3 zone trip is $3, while that for a 14 zone trip is $4.50. A more flexible and economical way of paying for travel in Bermuda is to buy tokens, a book of 15 tickets or a transportation pass for the day for $12. They are also valid on ferries and can be purchased at various locations. I paid for mine at my hotel desk.
