The buses run every 5 to 15 minutes. The park and ride makes a stop at the outlets.
Most attractions are accessible this way.
There is a tram on the boardwalk but we walked it from beginning to end.
easiest way to get there
You have to eithe take the plane to Salisbury airport which you normally will have to transfer from BWI,
take Amtrak to BWI and take the shuttle for 3 hours to the Park and Ride Bus. If you are further up the island you may have to get a local bus. If that is the case it may be cheaper to pay for an all day pass instead of a one time fare.
drive for a number of hours
Exactly the opposite of the Drunk Bus, the Boardwalk Bus is one of the worst deals in Ocean City. This bus goes from one end of the 3-mile boardwalk to the other. The fare is $2.50 for a one-way trip, even if you only want to go 1/2 mile.
Better options: walking, jogging, riding a bike, swimming, crawling, hitch hiking...
The "Drunk" Bus
The Drunk Bus runs from the southern tip of Ocean City to the northern tip all day every day. Its best feature is that for only $2.00, you can get on and off all day anywhere, as many times as you wish. During the day it has many families, but its name comes from the trips later in the evening when it is full of drunk bar-hoppers...

Rent a bike for 4!
Here I am with my daughter, Denise and her daughters, Amelia and Veronica. We rented this bike, and man-o-man, what a work out! My daughter was ready to call it quits after about 20 minutes! The girls loved it! It was $22.00/hour. We rode out against the wind, and the ride was much easier with the wind at our backs. These bikes are really heavy, and not allowed on the boardwalk after 12:00pm.

All day Bus Pass $1.00
Driving is slow, a traffic light every 25 feet. For $1.00 you can ride the busses from one end of town to the other, cheap as it gets from early in morning until 1:00AM. If you stay uptown in condo area, this is a must to get around in a timely manor.
They have a very good bus...
They have a very good bus network that runs late.
