Learn how to get around on Anna Maria Island without ever having to get behind the wheel of a car! Whether it’s free transportation you’re looking for, or some kind of rental, you can get from here to there, and back again by browsing the options below that can help to make your Anna Maria Island vacation more relaxing and memorable.

Anna Maria Island Trolley

The Anna Maria Island Trolley maintains five green trolleys that make the trip from the north to the south end of the island from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day of the year.

Wait for the next trolley in a covered seating area (available at most stops) and just hop on–it’s totally free! The Anna Maria City Pier and two beaches–Manatee Public Beach and Coquina Beach–are the main 3-minute stops, with others being every two to four blocks.

You can catch this nice, air-conditioned ride every 20 minutes or so. The Anna Maria Island Trolley is free, convenient, comfortable and reliable.

Biking on Anna Maria Island

If you’re traveling relatively short distances and want to enjoy the outdoors and get some exercise, you can always choose to rent a bike. There are several places on the island to rent bikes, including Lizzie Lu’s Island Retreat Bike Rentals.

Pick from among several men’s and women’s 7-speed Cruisers that come with helmet, basket, and lock. Kids’ bikes available, too! Rent them by the day or the week. Most places, like Lizzie Lu’s, will deliver your bikes right to your cottage, condo or rental home.

Get the whole family out pedaling and grab some food, roll into town for some shopping or just do a little sight-seeing. It’s a fun and healthy way to get around Anna Maria Island.

Free Transportation from Island Beach Monkeys

Go anywhere–on or off the island–with Island Beach Monkeys. From individuals to groups, you can go shopping, run errands, take a tour, go to dinner or do just about anything you want to do and not have to worry about how you’re going to get there!

A Transportation Method That’s a Real GEM

Do you want a quick way around the island that gives you the open-air feel of a bike and puts YOU in the driver’s seat? Well, there’s an answer: a GEM rental car.

Available from places like Lizzie Lu’s, this electric oversized golf cart can go wherever you can drive at least 35 mph. Hit downtown, the beach, the restaurants–whatever you like. You’ll get there quickly, safely and in style.

Each GEM car comes fully charged and with a recharging cable and contains safety belts and a windshield just like you’d get in an actual car. And there’s a surprising amount of leg and headroom for the tallest of adults!

Taxis on Anna Maria Island

You always have that old standby, the taxi, when it comes to transportation on Anna Maria Island.

AMI Taxi provides limo services for the airport and taxi cabs for moving around the island, such as going from your rental condo or home to the beach, shops or eateries. Rates are reasonable and cars are air-conditioned, clean and comfortable. You can also rent cars or golf carts from AMI Taxi!

This taxi service is available 24/7 and even accepts on-car credit card payments. They can be reached at (800)-301-4816.

Anna Maria Island Limos

In addition to the aforementioned Island Beach Monkeys and AMI Taxi, ALD Limo – Premium Limousine Service also provides limo rentals for weddings, group events and other occasions. Limos are a great way to travel to and from the airport–they’ll comfortably hold the whole family and plenty of room for your luggage.

Anna Maria Island is a picture-perfect place to get married. If you’re planning on having your wedding on the island, it’s good to know that, in addition to the limos you’ll want, there are many large beach rentals, such as Island Dance at Lizzie Lu’s Retreat, that your wedding guests can call home while in town to be a part of your special day.

These homes are often 5+ bedrooms to house at least ten people–a great place to put up your entire wedding party if needed.

And there you have it: plenty of ways to get to where you want to go on Anna Maria Island, along with the popular ride-share apps as well. So now there’s no excuse not to see as much of the island as possible.
