There are very few transport options available on the island of Fuerteventura. Public transport is limited to buses, which operate across the island. Buses serving Nuevo Horizonte, Corralejo, Caleta de Fuste, Morro Jable, and Costa Calma run most frequently. For other routes, passengers should consult a timetable. Those who plan on using buses regularly during their stay should invest in a 'BTF Bono' card.
Taxis are available on the island and can be found at most busy locations or pre-booked ahead of time. As taxis can become quite expensive, travellers should consider the option of hiring a car in Fuerteventura, as this won't only save money but give them the freedom to explore the island at a more leisurely pace. There are lots of car hire companies with offices at the airport.
