Cars and motorbikes
Families in Rhodes often own more than one car, along with a motorbike. Traffic jams are common particularly in the summer months as vehicles more than double while parking spots downtown and around the old town are limited and can’t cope with demand. Moreover, the island is served by 450 taxis and some 200 public and private buses adding to the traffic burden.
