Saint Lucia

Bus

A privately owned network of minivans acts as the island's main cost-effective transportation system. They follow the ring road that circles the island, stopping at every town. In towns, buses will stop at specifically designated bus stops, whereas in rural Saint Lucia, you can expect the buses to pull over at any convenient spot on the road as long as you have signaled to the driver appropriately. Once you are on the bus make sure to call out 'stopping driver' before you reach the stop you want to get off at. Services between towns tend to be frequent and run until approximately 19.00. Between Castries and Gros Islet services run until past 22.00. Most services do not run on Sundays. Castries to Gros Islet or Marigot Bay is around EC$2.50. Castries to Soufrière, EC$8.
