Put-in-Bay Transportation


Golf Carts – Put-in-Bay Taxis

Transportation around Put-in-Bay Ohio is as easy as taking a taxi, renting a golf cart, or riding bicycles and mopeds.  It is always a good idea to plan your trip in advance and be prepared when you get off the Miller Ferry as golf cart rentals often sell out on busy days.

Once off you Put-in-Bay ferry ride across Lake Erie take a taxi downtown to rent from one the Put-in-Bay golf cart rental agencies!

PutinBay.com recommends the following transportation companies to serve your needs while on your Put-in-Bay island adventure. Book your Put-in-Bay lodging and golf cart rental now before it’s too late!

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. 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 Rental agencies are conveniently located in downtown Put-in-Bay.

Both Golf Cart Depot and Delaware Cart Rentals’ golf carts are considered to be licensed motor vehicles on South Bass Island and driven on public roadways just as cars are. Be sure to have a valid driver’s license on all times.   4, 6 and 8 passenger golf carts are available for any sized group. All carts feature tops, windshields, headlights, taillights, turn signals and seat belts and are fully certified each year by the Put-in-Bay Police Dept.

Put-in-Bay Golf Cart Depot rents by the hour, day or week and is one of the only golf cart rentals to offer overnight rentals on the island. Rental rates may change during weekends. All golf carts from Delaware Carts are gas models. THIS IS IMPORTANT!

There is a big reason why most 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 Golf Cart Rentals

Delaware Carts rents by the hour or day as well as all week and is popular because it offers both gas and electric cart. Our 4 and 6-person golf carts are your passport for overnight and weekend or all week-long rentals. We have a newer fleet of Yamaha golf carts ready to take to from your favorite Put-in-Bay hotel to the best Put-in-Bay attractions. Other golf cart rentals on the island use brands like Club Car and Ez-go.

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 offer bike rentals and is also home to Island Moped Rental, the island’s only moped rental agency. Located at 266 Delaware Ave, they are just a short walk from the Jet Express and just an Island Club Taxi ride from the car ferry.
