Getting Here and Getting Around:

Ferry Services - - Ferry terminal in Woods Hole, MA can be reached via several bus services departing from both Boston, MA, Providence, RI, and New York City, NY.
Once on-island, getting around is very easy.
  • Buses - Martha's Vineyard Transit Authority (that's us) operates seven days a week, 363 days a year.  During the summer buses run from 5:00am to 3:00am daily.
  • Bicycling - There are 44 miles of bike paths on-island.  Our facility is just off the bike path adjacent to the airport in the center of the Island and is easily accesible from the other towns.
  • Car - While having a car on the Island would be most convenient, many seasonal associates just don't find it neccesary.  Parking can be very challenging!
