Isle of Man Transport (Manx: Arraghey Ellan Vannin) is an agency of Isle of Man Government that operates public transport on the Isle of Man.

Isle of Man Transport operates the following services:

The three railways are operated under the banner of Isle of Man Railways, and the Isle of Man Transport title is defunct: buses have operated under the heading of Bus Vannin since 2009.

In addition to these services, there are other forms of public transport on the island that are not government-owned and operated: these include the Douglas Bay Horse Tramway operated by Douglas Corporation (the local authority) and Protours (Isle of Man), an independent coach company. There are also three privately owned and operated short-distance tourist railways: the Groudle Glen Railway, the Great Laxey Mine Railway, and The Orchid Line (a miniature railway within the Curraghs Wildlife Park).
