Hilton Head Island Transportation
When people visit they ask about the options for Hilton Head Island Transportation. Often they want to know if they need a car on the Island. Hilton Head is a 12 by 5 mile island without any real mass transportation so if you want to get around other than a bike (which is a must) we suggest it. Here are some ways to travel.
First of all UBER does operate here and is able to go behind many of the private gates but do confirm they can take you.
Options from Hilton Head Island Airport and Savannah/Hilton Head International Airports
Diamond Transportation 843.247.2156
Yellow Cab HHI 843.686.6666
KShuttle Hilton Head – primarily drops you off at the larger hotels not your individual Vacation Rental.
Ferguson Transportation – waiting at the Hilton Head Airport 843.842.8088
When you stay in Palmetto Dunes Resort, there is free shuttle service provided by the Dunes Buggy.
