Wether you arrive on the Miller Ferry or the Jet Express the first thing you’ll see when you step off the ferry dock are taxis waiting to take you to wherever you’d like to go on the island for only $3. After walking through the Welcome to Put-in-Bay sign, most visitors will will take a taxi right to the Golf Cart Depot to pick up their golf cart rental. From there, let the fun begin! 

All of the golf carts on Put-in-Bay island are licensed motor vehicles equipped with seat belts, taillights, turn signals and are inspected frequently by the Put-in-Bay police department for safety. Most rental agencies on the island require drivers to be 18 years or older to rent a cart and at least 16 years of age and licensed to be able to drive. All drivers must have a valid drivers license and obey all Ohio traffic laws on the island.
