The Barbados Transport Board is a government operated public system that provides
regularly scheduled bus service to all parts of the island. Service
on the blue colored buses runs from as early as 6 a.m. to midnight.
The fare is $1.50 for adults and $1 for school age children. There’s
also a privately operated mini-bus system. Visitors can easily tell
the difference because the private system vehicles are painted bright
yellow with a blue strip. The government bus system is reasonably
on time and well marked but the private buses are more reliable,
though drivers are known for packing as many as possible into the
vehicles. Taxis are also available but users should be sure to find
out the fare ahead of time because the cars do not have meters.
For those who want to rent a car, remember that driving is on the
left hand side.
