Put-in-Bay Moped Rentals
For Moped Rentals, there is a location on the main street in downtown Put-in-Bay just a one block walk from the Jet Express or a 5 minute cab ride from the car ferry. If you plan on visiting any of the Put-in-Bay bars or restaurants, we would recommend a taxi or golf cart rental instead for safety.
Mopeds are Tomos Brand single rider mopeds and a fantastic way to tour Put in Bay. They will run all day on a single tank of fuel and are easy to operate. You must be 18 years of age to rent or operate a moped. Rental rates are below. Reservations are wise and available.

- 1 person mopeds are $12.00 per hour -or- $50 per day
All mopeds are licensed and street legal. They all include proper safety equipment including headlights, taillights, and turn signals.
Additional Golf Cart and Moped Rentals Information:
When operating a golf cart or moped, please yield to any traffic that is bigger than you and let them pass. If you’re riding a bicycle, please ride single file and to the side of the roadway.
Golf cart and moped operators should also yield to any larger traffic. Carts don’t move that fast and can bottleneck traffic such as busses or taxis which are moving people to and from the ferry services. If you decide to stop and sightsee, stop your cart or moped and move as close to the right shoulder as possible to let larger traffic pass and then continue on your way.
Golf carts and mopeds are licensed vehicles on Put-in-Bay Island and therefore are operated under the same set of laws as any other motor vehicle (automobile) in the State of Ohio. This means you must possess a valid driver’s license and proof of insurance. Please do not let anyone operate your golf cart or moped unless they are a licensed driver.
