Transport has been a vital element in Jersey's development over the years. From the earliest days when men living in coastal areas earned their living fishing offshore in small boats, to the cod fishing industry across the Atlantic and trade with ports throughout the British Isles, Western Europe and further afield, the sea has been central to Jersey's economy. And as better internal links developed with proper roads followed by the railways in the 19th century, and then regular sea links to England, followed by air services, tourism was able to develop as the island's number one industry in the 20th century. The links on this page provide direct access to Jerripedia articles on every aspect of travel.
