Getting Around Key West

The best way to get around Key West’s small boundaries of two miles by four miles is to walk. But barring that, the Old Town Trolley (305-296-6688) fleet not only takes you everywhere, it also includes narrations of the city’s past and present.

The 90-minute tour includes motor-driven vehicles styled after San Francisco cable cars. The fleet departs at 30-minute intervals from Old Town and New Town boarding locations that include Bahama Village, Mallory Square, the Key West Welcome Center, and hotels and resort properties.

There’s a single fare for hop-on, hop-off transportation running 365 days a year.

The Conch Tour Train (305-294-5161) offers small, open, canvas-canopied cars pulled by propane-powered simulated steam engines with smokestacks, whistles and bells. Railroad buffs will appreciate it.

Parking is tight and for those who prefer not to drive, another alternative is the Bone Island Shuttle (305-293-8710). The painted shuttle buses stop every 30 minutes at Clinton Square and other locations. Multiple-day passes are available.

Mopeds or Conch Cruisers bicycles with flat tries, locks and baskets are available at many hotel and resort properties, as well as at bike shops. Daily and weekly rates are available.

Two-and-four seat electric cars capable of speeds up to 25 miles an hour are also available for anywhere from two hours to several days. Key West Cruisers (305-294-4724 or 888-800-8802) provides pick-up and drop off service (for more information, call 305-294-4724).

Taxis, city buses painted with island-themed designs by local artists, rental cars and Duval Street pedicabs (Perfect Pedicab, 305-292-0077) are also options for getting around.
