Isle Of Man Travel

Public transport is a quick and convenient way of getting around the Isle of Man. There are many different forms of transport available from taxis to steam trains, bus or by cycling. Roads are small but not busy and as the island is just 33 miles long by 13.5 miles wide so getting around takes no time at all.

Alternately there are hire cars available, taxis and a frequent bus service during the day. The other Channel Islands can all be reached by ferry from St Peter Port. Jersey and Alderney can also be reached by plane. The Manx Electric Railway along the east side of the island is a pleasant way to get from Douglas to Ramsey or back again.
