How to get around in Key West?

Key West is a small, island city and compact enough to explore on foot. Most of the popular attractions are likely to be just a brief stroll from your hotel. If you don’t want to walk everywhere, here are other ways to get around in the city.

Cycling

Cycling is an interesting way to explore Key West. Many bike shops rent bikes at affordable rates and deliver them to your hotel for your convenience. Several hotels also carry their own fleet of bikes, so check for availability at the hotel where you stay.

Buses

Key West Transit operates a few bus routes across the city. A single trip costs $2.00 USD while a day pass for $4.00 USD allows you unlimited rides for 24 hours. However, the routes and frequency are not comparable to a big city’s public transport network.

Taxis

For a fast and convenient way to get around, you’ll easily find taxis throughout the city. You can hail one in the street or call for a taxi using the app, TaxiASAP, or just give the local taxi company a call. Ride-share options such as Lyft and Uber are also popular ways to commute in Key West.

Driving

The city’s narrow roads are always bustling with tourists on foot or on bikes, which makes driving the city streets slightly tedious. In addition, parking can be quite a hassle, as many inns and small motels do not have sufficient space. However, you can use the City of Key West Old Town Parking Garage and pay $3.00 USD per hour or $18.00 USD per day. With a valid Park N’ Ride Garage ticket, you can board the local buses for free.
