Shuttles and taxis provide transport options to Montego Bay and hotels, using the A1 highway. Minibuses running to Montego Bay's centre can be arranged at Sangster Airport's Ground Transportation Arrivals Hall and then caught from just outside of this area, while those on package holidays will be met at the airport by a coach. If you are thinking of taking a taxi to Montego Bay, seek advice from the information desk as to what official JUTA and JCAL taxis look like and always agree on the price before embarking on your journey.
