Gibraltar has an excellent local bus service operated by the Gibraltar Bus Company.

The buses are blue and there are four main routes 2,3,4,9.
Calypso Transport operate route no 10 which goes between the Frontier and the Superstore at the Europort and uses red double-decker buses.
By Boat & Ferry
Ferries operate to various destinations in the Mediterranean including a regular service to Tangiers in Morocco. Several companies offer boat trips around the Bay of Gibraltar to see the dolphins.
Gibraltar is so small (about 6 square kilometres) that getting around town and the Rock on foot is fairly easy…for those who like walking!
Walking to the lookout point where the cable car stops is a considerable hike that could take at least 2 hours or more.
