Marthas Vineyard sightseeing by bus

Need information on bus tours on Martha's Vineyard. Read that they are "hop on/hop off". Can you see most of the island that way or would it be better to rent a car. We will be there for 2 days

I would rent a car if you really want to see the island. Go ahead and splurge for a convertible. You can hop on/hop off with buses but it can be time consuming. Hope that helps.

Depends on whether or not you want to spend the $$ for the car. Busses go pretty much all over the island - here is a link with all the info:

Clang, if you do want to rent a car for the day, just keep in mind that they start at around $125 base price per 24 hours, and about $225 base for a mini cooper convertible or Jeep Wrangler. Advanced reservations are definitely suggested. Pricey I know, but that's the price you pay for being on an island.

You can get around using public transit, but if you really want to see the island in depth and at your own leisure then a car would be a good choice.

Thanks for the information. If 3-4 of us rent one together I guess the cost wouldn't be so bad. Thanks again!

Not sure about need to reserve in advance here now and plenty of cars available. But best way to see island is spend some time on a bike. Trip report to follow
