Getting Around Nantucket

Getting Around

There are several ways to explore all the Grey Lady has to offer. For short stays the bus system, Ubers/Taxis, and bikes are great! And nothing beats renting a 4x4 to go off-roading.


Bringing or renting a bike is an extremely effective way to explore Nantucket. With sprawling bike paths and dirt trails, biking adventures are endless and a blast. It's also good to know that you can put your bike on the shuttle to get to more remote areas.

If you’re going to rent a car, we'll always suggest a 4WD for getting around the and exploring the island. While not necessary to getting around the island, it does add convenience at times and can get you additional access to certain locations.

The WAVE (Nantucket's shuttle system) is robust, efficient, and well run. We cannot recommend it enough for getting around the island. Cisco Brewery also offers a shuttle going back and forth between the brewery and town (this one is always a good idea!).
