Lynden Pindling International Airport (NAS)
Nassau’s airport, about 13 kilometers from the city center, is the largest in the Bahamas, and serves as an international gateway into the Bahamas. You have a few options for getting into the city from the airport.
Taxis are available outside the US, international, and domestic terminals. The ride into Nassau takes about 25 minutes and will cost you approximately $32.00 USD.
Many arriving tourists use shuttle transfers to their accommodation, they may be provided by your hotel, or you can click here to prearrange your own shuttle service.
If you want to travel like a local, you can ride the jitneys (small buses). They are affordable, at only $1.50 USD per ride, but don’t actually stop at the airport. There are a couple of lines stopping nearby; you can catch the 12a or the 10 if you walk 5 minutes from the airport to the Shell gas station. Schedules are lax, and routes fluctuate, but if you ask the friendly locals how to get where you want to go, they are more than willing to direct you.
If you decide to rent a car in Nassau, remember that you must drive on the left side of the road. It’s definitely worth checking for deals on car rentals with momondo.
