Since 1876 is operated the Sundbat ("Sound Boat") shuttle service for traveling between the islands. The small-capacity ferry ship crosses the harbour to Innlandet from Kirkelandet, then continues to Nordlandet, Gomalandet, and back to Kirkelandet. The roundtrip is repeated in half-hour intervals on weekdays. The Sundbat ferry bears the distinction of being the world's oldest motorized, regularly scheduled public transportation system in continuous service.
