Getting around

New Providence is small and fairly easy to navigate. Roads are well maintained and Bay Street flows east to west along the shoreline. Taxis are plentiful or hire a car to explore. You can also use the ferry service or wait for a jitney, a bus that runs between 6am-8pm but to no fixed schedule.
