Hop on the bus, lean back and discover the island in an informal and inexpensive way.
Buses stop frequently at the bus stops in the hotel area and drive to most beaches and tourist attractions. It’s an easy and reliable way to get around the island.
Plan your trip from A to B using public transport. The buses drive to many destinations, giving you the flexibility you need to get anywhere you want to go, whenever you want to be there.
The busses on the island belong to Arubus, the major public transportation company owned by the Government of Aruba.
Aruba bus routes cover almost the entire island and stop at all hotels. If you want to see the exact routes or the full Aruba bus map, check out the website of Arubus.
There is bus service every 15 minutes from 5:45am until 6pm; buses then run every 40 minutes until 11:30pm. The central bus station in downtown Oranjestad is located adjacent to the cruise terminal and next to the Royal Plaza. Would you like to know what time the bus pays your stop a visit? The website of Arubus shows you the route and the Aruba bus schedule for each route.
The Aruba bus stops are easy to find. There is a visible sign on the side of the bus. For instance the stop at your hotel will display the hotel and town that each individual bus is en-route too.
Getting around the island using public transportation is inexpensive. Retour cards, cards for specific beaches, and all-day, unlimited passes are readily available. Retour cards are Afl 8.75 (local currency)/US $5.00 and can be used for two trips (for example, from downtown to the beaches and back).
If you are looking for a private way of transportation, a taxi or even car rental might be a great option for you.
