Despite being part of the European Union, the French West Indies are not often in the focus of research. This paper aims to introduce Martinique and its public transport systems. Starting with an overview over Martinique, the present transport situation will be analysed with findings as follows: the most important suppliers of public transport services are buses in the capital area and taxi collectives on routes to/from the capital. Individual transport by (rental) car plays a major role, so road congestion is a major issue. Recent developments and innovations that may improve the present situation will be discussed as well.
