    i am kind of surprised that an employee from the arubbus would add the duh () seems a bit snarky or inapproriate imo.

    i think a smart card,for a week or 2's use would not be beneficial to the typical tourist. i think the smart card is intended for daily users/residents. but i might be wrong. what is the cost of the smart card?

    Good point. If the Smart Card has a cost involved, then it may not be worth it. Usually they are just a simple paper with a magnetic strip or something, and could be free?

    I just looked at the Arubus website and the info is a bit sketchy, but it looks like a card you can get and reload with money for rides at a reduced rate. I agree that it might not be worth it for just a week, but there was mention of 20 free introductory rides.

    Good information. If you have a family you can use the same card for each passenger. I belive that should save some money!

    The bus driver told me that you have to be a resident to get a card.
