Public local transport is the cheapest way of going around Gozo. Its limit though, is its restricted time-table which at times can be infrequent. Gozo buses are painted grey with red stripe on each side and can carry approximately 50 passengers. The cost per trip does not exceed € 0.47.
Gozo route buses serve villages around Gozo from the central Victoria Bus Terminus in Main Gate Street. They are identified by the number they carry on the front. In Summer, buses operate trips to Dwejra and Ramla Bay, while they increase the trip frequency to Marsalforn and Xlendi Bays. For bus routes and schedule, click here

Taxis in Gozo are easy to notice, being painted white with a "TAXI" indicator on the roof. They also carry their registration number on the side doors. They are driver-owned and probably the most comfortable way for getting around Gozo. They can be found in Taxi stands, mainly by the ferries at Mgarr, or at Victoria in Triq Putirjal (Main Gate Street), a stone's throw away from the main bus terminus. Taxis in Gozo are all metered.
