Transport in Jamaica
All popular modes of transport are available on the island of Jamaica. There are regular flights from the capital, Kingston, to other popular resort areas. Shuttle flights also run between Montego Bay and Negril. There are various sea travel options available, including cruises, water taxis and sailing yachts, and in terms of travel by land, car hire tends to be a popular mode of travel for tourists, though drivers must be over 25 years of age. Road conditions tend to make travelling by night dangerous and caution should be taken. A few functional railway lines are operational, and a regular bus service runs between Kingston and Montego Bay. For groups travelling by road, the Jamaica Union of Travellers Association (JUTA) offers a reliable minibus service for tourists. The use of taxis is common practice, though it is advisable to agree upon a rate before making use of the service.
