George Town

Get around


By bus

Georgetown has good public transportation options, with two main bus terminals in the city: one near the jetty and the other near Komtar Mall. You will need to have the correct change to pay the driver for your ticket. Do note that public buses do not collect passengers after 10 pm.

By taxi

Taxis are, as with most places in the world, the most expensive way to travel around the city. Although taxis are required by law to use the meter, many drivers will find a way not to do this. Ensure you find a taxi with a working meter and a driver that actually switches it on. For sightseeing tours, you can charter a taxi for a flat rate per hour.

By scooter

Scooters are available to rent and can be a great way for experienced riders to get out of the city and explore. Do make sure that you always wear a helmet and that you have appropriate insurance.

By foot

The Georgetown Heritage Trail is a well-marked walking route that leads past many of the city’s historic buildings and places of interest. When exploring Georgetown by foot keep a watchful eye out for uneven pavements and uncovered drains.
