Grand Canary visitors will find that transportation is a viable option for getting around the area. The main mode of public transportation is the local bus system (http://www.globalsu.net/index_en.php) and the local "guaguas" in Las Palmas (http://www.guaguas.com). Travelers should be able to easily understand and use the bus system in order to navigate to most major local tourist attractions. Fares are relatively inexpensive. The buses are said to be comfortable, although they can sometimes get quite crowded. Visitors should keep in mind that payment is made upon boarding and exact change is required.
Travelers interested in getting from Grand Canary to other nearby travel destinations will likely find that the best mode of public transportation for doing so is the local ferry service. Ferries are run by independent companies but operate as public transportation. There are three major companies to know about for ferry service from the island: Fred Olsen, Trasmediterranea and Naviera Arms. Additional information about ferry service is available online at http://grancanariaonline.com/service/... .
Travelers may find it necessary to supplement their public transportation with self-transport or taxi service. The latter is recommended although the former is also a viable option.
