Is it possible to get around Cape Cod without a car? Yes.
Is there a convenient alternative to having your own car on the Cape? Yes and no, as I'll explain below.
Cape Cod Regional Transportation Authority ("CCRTA") buses take passengers all over the Cape all year round. And you sure can't beat the fares!
One-way rides are $2. For a mere $6, you can buy a full-day pass and ride to your heart's content. Seniors and people with disabilities ride at one-half the regular fare.
However ... CCRTA's buses and shuttles aren't a "one size fits all" solution to getting around Cape Cod without a car.
CCRTA buses and shuttles follow a fixed route and set schedule, Monday through Saturday, with limited off-route deviations.
Will their routes and schedules work for you? Will you be able to go wherever you want to go - and back again - when it's convenient for you?
There's only one way to know: check CCRTA's routes and schedules.
Taxis, Uber and Lyft are great options for getting around Cape Cod without your own car.
Granted, their fares can take a big bite out of your wallet. But they are an option! ;-)
During the summer months, you'll find in-town trolleys and shuttles in some (but not all) Cape Cod towns.
Look for "hop on, hop off" trolley services in:
