A practical way to reach Royal Naval Dockyard is on a government- operated Bermuda Breeze bus, routes 7 or 8. A blue or pink pole indicates a bus stop. If the pole is blue, the bus travels from Hamilton to Dockyard; if the pole is pink, the direction of the route is towards Hamilton from Dockyard. You must have exact fare in coins if you pay cash; bills are not accepted. Bermuda is divided into 14 zones. Trips up to three zones cost $3; longer trips are $4.50. The cost of a token is $2.50 for three zones and $4 for up to 14 zones. (292-3851, bermudabuses.bm) Visitors can also rent a scooter from Oleander Cycles, Bermuda’s number one cycle livery, offering quality scooters at competitive rates. In Dockyard, Oleander Cycles is located at Cockburn Road. The company provides instructions and a practice area. The Dockyard location is open when the cruise ships are in port. (234-2764, oleandercycles.bm) Bermuda’s Sea Express ferry system provides residents and visitors a reliable, regular mode of transport. Ferries are an easy and convenient way to travel to Dockyard and affords passengers a perfect opportunity to see the island’s beauty from the water. The Blue Route serves Hamilton, Somerset and Dockyard ($4 each way). A seasonal Orange Route operates from April to November from St. George’s to Dockyard ($4 each way). (295-4506, seaexpress.Bm) The most popular method of payment for visitors is the Transportation Pass, good for unlimited rides on the bus and ferry system.
