Put-in-Bay Transportation


Getting around Put-in-Bay Ohio is as easy as hailing a taxi, renting golf carts, riding bicycles or mopeds, or even riding around in the luxury of a pedicab to tour South Bass Island Put in Bay. It is always a good idea to plan your trip in advance and be prepared when you arrive as golf carts often sell out on busy days and ferry lines can be very long if you try to bring your car over. PutinBay.com recommends the following transportation companies to serve your needs while visiting the Island.

Golf Carts, Bicycles and Mopeds

Golf Carts are the primary method of transportation on South Bass Island. You can reach any island destination in just 10 minutes from any other place on the island, no matter where you are (give or take if you are up on top of Perry's Monument, of course!). Make sure you reserve your cart early at either Put-in-Bay Golf Cart Depot or Delaware Carts, to avoid waiting in line and possibly missing out on the chance to rent one.

Both Golf Cart Depot and Delaware Cart Rentals' golf carts are licensed as motor vehicles on South Bass Island, and driven on public roadways just as cars are. They are designed in 4, 6, and 8 passenger configurations. All carts feature tops, windshields, headlights, turn signals and seat belts and are fully licensed and certified each year by the PIB Police Dept.


Put-in-Bay Golf Cart Depot rents by the hour, day or week and is one of the only overnight golf cart rentals on the island. All golf carts from Delaware Carts are gas models. THIS IS IMPORTANT! There is a big reason why the majority of Put-in-Bay visitors choose our gas-powered carts instead of the electric ones offered at the ferry docks. (1) Gas powered carts are faster! (2) Gas powered carts run for days on a tank of gas and not just hours (electric carts were only designed for a couple rounds of golf). (3) Gas powered carts do not get slower as the day goes on (electric golf carts gradually lose their charge thru the day).

Delaware Carts rents by the hour or day as well as all week and is popular because it offers both gas and electric carts, depending on yoru environmental bent. Our 4 and 6 seat gas carts are your passport for overnight and weekend or all week long rentals. We have a newer fleet of Yamaha fuel injected carts that will enhance your visit to our island paradise. Our 2 person electric carts are a fun and quick way for couples to cruise the island for the day. If you're bringing the kids, our 4 seat electric will be a big hit also. Our carts are super safe with retractable seat belts to keep your precious cargo safe and secure.

Delaware Carts also rents high quality Atlas bicycles and is home to Island Moped Rental, the island's only moped rental agency. Located at 266 Delaware Avenue, they are just a short walk from the Jet Express and just an Island Club Taxi ride from the car ferry.
