Guernsey's external transport links are vital for economic reasons.

The main passenger and freight harbour is located in St Peter Port, with a smaller tidal harbour located at St Sampsons which primarily accommodates importation of fuels and building aggregates. In 2010 approximately 338,000 passengers travelled through St Peter Port harbour.

The airport is located in the southern part of the Island approximately 3 miles from the Island's main Town in St Peter Port. It opened in 1939 and in 2011 handled over 900,000 passenger movements and nearly 56,000 aircraft movements.

The Public Services Department is the States body responsible for management of these strategic facilities. They are also the body responsible for maintaining approximately 300 miles of public highway in Guernsey.

The Traffic and Transport Services Section of the Environment Department is responsible for developing and implementing safe and sustainable traffic strategy and also for regulating the provision of public bus and taxi services. In 2011 there were approximately 87,000 vehicles registered on the Island and 44,000 full driving licence holders.
