On Nantucket

Visitors are strongly discouraged from bringing automobiles to the island, especially from June through August when traffic is at its heaviest and clogs Nantucket’s narrow streets. Island-wide, public transportation is available seasonally, from mid-May through Columbus Day, via the Nantucket Regional Transportation Authority’s shuttle buses, known as the NRTA. Visit their website for more information, www.shuttlenantucket.com.

Bicycle and car rentals are also available at the wharves and car rentals are available at the airport. Guided bus tours and walking tours, in season, are also good ways to acquaint yourself with Nantucket.

Taxis are plentiful year-round with stands near both boat lines, the airport and in-town.
