Gibraltar Insider

Local Bus Service

With Gibraltar covering a land mass of less than 7 square kilometres, getting around is fairly easy on all modes of transport including the local bus service. Holidaymakers arriving at Gibraltar Airport can choose from a limited selection of international car hire companies based within the airport terminal, however it is always a good idea to book your car hire in advance of your arrival, especially during the busy summer months.

Getting about on foot is the best way to explore Gibraltar, even from the airport which is just a short distance from the city centre, although if you have just arrived with a load of luggage it's best to get a taxi to your accommodation before hitting the streets on foot. Alternately the local bus service runs 7 daily routes that takes passengers to the majority of beaches and attractions, as well as a night bus service which is great to get to and from bars and entertainment venues.
