You can find a list of bus routes at Gibraltar Transportation’s website.
If you don’t want to depend on the bus, or plan to be out past nine, you can rent a car. Parking spots are small around town, so larger cars are harder to park.
Planes and Trains

Once in La Linea you need only walk across the border into Gibraltar.
