Rail Transport
Historically there were public railway services in the island, provided by two railway companies:

  • The Jersey Railway (closed in 1936)
  • The Jersey Eastern Railway (closed in 1929).

Two railways operate at the Pallot Heritage Steam Museum; a standard gauge heritage steam railway, and a narrow gauge pleasure line operated by steam-outline diesel motive power.

Buses
Buses are operated by CT Plus Jersey, a local subsidiary of HCT Group. Bus service routes radiate from the Liberation Station in St Helier.

In 2012, it was announced that CT Plus would take over the operation of the bus service, commencing on 2 January 2013, ending 10 years of Connex service in Jersey. This new service is called LibertyBus.

Cycling
Jersey has a well sign posted Island Cycle Network. A traffic-free route for cyclists and pedestrians links Saint Helier to La Corbière and a branch of this route ends up at St Peter’s village passing Jersey Airport.

Driving
Driving is on the left-hand side. The maximum speed limit throughout the entire island is 40 mph (64 km/h), with slower limits on certain stretches of road, such as 20/30 mph (32/48 km/h) in built up areas and 15 mph (24 km/h) on roads designated as green lanes.

Driving License:
Visitors wishing to drive must possess a Certificate of Insurance or an International Green Card, a valid Driving Licence or International Driving Permit (UK International Driving Permits are not valid). Photocopies are not acceptable. A nationality plate must be displayed on the back of visiting vehicles.

Sea Transport
A Condor Ferries catamaran heading west around Jersey past La Tour de Vinde, Noirmont, Saint Brelade.

Seaports & Harbours:
Saint Helier is the island’s main port, others include Gorey, Saint Aubin, La Rocque, and Bonne Nuit. It is 33.6 miles (54.1 km) distant from Granville, Manche, 142.9 miles (230.0 km) from Southampton, 131.3 miles (211.3 km) from Poole, and 22.9 miles (36.9 km) from St Malo.
Passenger-only access to France is provided by Manche-Iles Express ferry service, to either Barneville-Carteret, Granville or Dielette.

A service to St Malo was provided by Compagnie Corsaire, but is now operated by its sister service, Condor Ferries, which runs Commodore Goodwill, a large ro-ro vessel to Portsmouth, and has multiple ro-ro connections to Poole and St Malo.

  • Poole – Guernsey – Jersey (seasonal service normally operated by Condor Liberation)
  • Portsmouth – Guernsey – Jersey (Commodore Clipper, Commodore Goodwill. Commodore
  • Goodwill service is extended to St Malo at the weekends)
  • Saint-Malo – Jersey – Guernsey (Condor Rapide)
