Getting Around Saint Lucia by Bus
St. Lucia has an inexpensive bus service which is the primary means of commuting around and between urban centres. Buses are privately owned small transit-minivan which has a maximum seating capacity of 14 passengers. All buses are registered with a green M' licence plate and are labelled with a yellow sticker on the front of the vehicle, signifying their route (e.g. Route 1A) from downtown Castries. The service does not operate on a time schedule, however, buses are more frequent on main routes during the weekday and Saturday mornings. The service is less frequent on Sundays and late evenings and may pose a challenge travelling between Castries and the southern areas of the island during these times.
There isn't a central bus terminal in Castries where all buses originate, however, visitors travelling within the Castries to Gros Islet route will find most buses (including Route 1A) located on the eastern side of the Castries Market. The origin of other bus routes are strategically located throughout Castries city centre.
