Getting Around in US Virgin Islands

By Water

Ferries leave from Charlotte Amalie and Red Hook Dock on St Thomas, for Cruz Bay on St John. The Virgin Islands Fast Ferry operates a service from St Croix to St Thomas from November to May. Booking is advised.

By Road

In the US Virgin Islands, traffic drives on the left. Well-maintained roads connect all main towns. The speed limit is 35 kph (20 mph) in towns and 55 kph (35 mph) elsewhere. There is a rudimentary highway numbering system. Roads are marked with circular signs. Numbers beginning with 1 and 2 are used on St John, with 3 and 4 on St Thomas and 5 to 7 on St Croix.


Public services operate on St Thomas from Charlotte Amalie to Red Hook and Bordeaux, and St Croix has a taxi-van service between Christiansted and Frederiksted. St John has a bus service running from Cruz Bay to Coral Bay.


Available on all the islands. These follow standard routes between various points, and the rates are published by the Virgin Islands Taxicab Commission. Sharing taxis is a common practice.

Car Rental

There are several international car rental agencies at the airports and in the main towns on St Croix, St John and St Thomas. Jeeps or mini-mokes are popular modes of travel and these too can be rented. Generally car rental rates will be comparable to the mainland US (about $500 per week or $80 per day). If you make advanced reservations, the rates are generally lower. Take out the insurance if you plan to go four wheeling up the steep mountain roads. Throughout St Thomas, there are coloured directional signs to major destinations.
