Instead of renting a car, or taking a taxi, tourist can take the bus to various points on the island. On the island of Aruba the public transportation bus is the Arubus.
Arubus N.V. is the major public transportation of Aruba owned by the Government of Aruba. We provide public transportation over major areas of the island. We also provide public school buses and private charters.
Over the past 35 years Arubus has grown from a fleet of 14 busses to a total 42 busses.
Our fleet consists of: 15 International busses, 12 Yutong busses and 21 Volvo busses
The main hub is at the Oranjestad Bus Terminal, where you can connect to other buses to travel throughout the rest of the island.
There is two bus that travels along the route, the big bus and a little bus. The big bus cost a little more than the smaller bus.
All the reviews that I saw online talk about how clean the buses are and how friendly the drivers are. Make sure to let the driver know where you are going as they might recommend a different stop for you to get off on.
There is a smart card where you can get a reduce bus fair. However, you need to be a resident of the island to get the card. The Smart Card is only available at the Oranjestad Bus Terminal and not at the airport.
They only accept cash on board the bus, you can get change - so you don't need exact change.
