Do I need car on Nantucket?
Depending on the circumstances, if you are here during the summer months, most likely you do not need a car. Most lodging establishments and homes are located in the main town. Walking across the downtown area takes between 5-10 minutes.

There is an extensive shuttle bus system that operates from late May to early October. There are bike, moped, and car rentals available.

If you feel that you need to bring a car, please call the Steamship Authority Car Ferry at 508-477-8600 to make reservations.
