Estero Island is inundated with traffic during the peak winter months, but you can get around on the Beach Trolley, which runs every hour, daily from 6:10am to 8:10pm, along the length of Estero Boulevard from Bowditch Regional Park at the north end south to Lovers Key. In winter, the Beach Park & Ride Trolley runs daily from 6:10am to 8:10pm between Summerlin Square Shopping Center, on the mainland at Summerlin Road and San Carlos Boulevard, to Bowditch Regional Park. Both trolleys cost $1.25 for adults, 60¢ for seniors, and are free for children under 42 inches. Ask your hotel staff or call LeeTran (tel. 239/275-8726; www.rideleetran.com) for more info.

For a cab, call Local Motion Taxi (tel. 239/463-4111).

There are no bike paths, per se, although many folks ride along the paved shoulders of Estero Boulevard.
