    Arubus does not stop at the airport. You would need to leave the airport and walk around the very busy (dangerous) highway to a bus stop. Depending on where staying a change of bus at the downtown bus terminal.

    Is this the bus you would take to venture up to the hi rise area then? Low cost? Taxis seem to be very expensive.

    For airport Taxis are best, around $30 with tip for two. Buses are otherwise excellent for rides up and down downtown to low/high rise areas. Their new retour card is round trip for $4/person.

    here is the taxi fare chart.

    i have been told that new fares are coming out soon.

    we rarely use taxis or bus in aruba, as we rent a car.
    however we have on occasion used taxis and found them very fairly priced.

    miss913 did you look at the routes for aruba bus? www.arubus.com

    Just a thought on taking a taxi to and from the airport. When we arrived, our driver took us through neighborhoods to get us to our hotel quicker. I think with cruise ships and the Soul Beach Music festival, the town was hopping at the time we arrived.

    We appreciated it for sure! Taking a bus with a set route would not have been fun. Time is precious.
