Regular Bus Service

Getting around in Barbados is relatively easy as there are a number of different modes of transportation from which to choose.  These are:
  • Government-owned buses which are blue with yellow stripes and carry the letters BM on their licence plate;
  • Privately owned minibuses which are yellow with blue stripes and carry the letter ‘B’ on their licence plates; and
  • Small privately owned route taxis which carry the letters “ZR” on their licence plates.

The fare to ride on all of these is Bds$2.00 one way. Services are available up to about 11:00 pm daily.
