Most people in Williamsburg get around in their own cars. There is no subway or rail system for exploring the city, but there is a basic public bus system. Although the bus is used primarily by locals and rarely by tourists, it does provide service to the major attractions such as Colonial Williamsburg, Busch Gardens and the outlet malls. Fares are $1.25, plus $0.25 for transfers.
Additionally, there is the Historic Triangle Shuttle which provides service between the Colonial Williamsburg Visitor Center and Jamestown and Yorktown. There is no charge for the shuttle service itself, but it is only available for people who have purchased tickets to visit one of the historic areas in Jamestown or Yorktown, such as Jamestown Settlement or Yorktown Victory Center. Boarding passes from the Colonial Williamsburg Visitor Center are required.
Colonial Williamsburg also operates a regular shuttle service between its Visitor Center and select hotels and attractions. This shuttle is available only to Colonial Williamsburg ticket holders, or to those who purchase a bus pass at the Visitors Center.
The Commonwealth of Virginia and Department of Motor Vehicles has certified local bus company Oleta Coach Lines, Inc for a bus route from The Williamsburg Transportation Center to shopping malls around The Hampton Roads area. The Williamsburg bus route runs from Williamsburg to Hampton, to Newport News then back to Williamsburg. It runs twice on Tuesdays.
