Allow us to take the wheel! Our public transport is safe, timely, reliable and a convenient alternative.
Getting around Aruba is quick and easy. Bus services to and from Oranjestad and the resort areas are reliable and inexpensive.
Our Arubus is a daily bus service all up and down the hotel district. There is bus service every 15 minutes from 5:45 am – 6 pm; buses then run every 40 minutes until 11:30 pm. The central bus station in Oranjestad is next to the cruise terminal and the Royal Plaza.
Return tickets are Afl 7 (local currency)/US $4.00 and can be used for two journeys (for example, from the town to the beaches and back). One of the easiest ways to get around the One happy island of Aruba is via public transport, especially by bus. Aruba busses, known to locals as Arubus, are strategically positioned around the island's hot-spots to make transportation both effortless and also economical. Bus stops are mere yards away from our most popular beaches and tourist attractions!
Safe, friendly and efficient rides are the goal of public transport in Aruba, which is why our Arubus offers several routes running from the main bus depot in Oranjestad to all other destinations of the island. Return tickets, tickets for specific beaches and all-day, unlimited passes are all readily available, allowing you the flexibility you need to get anywhere you want to go, whenever you want to be there.
Busses in Aruba also stop at all the hotels! There is a visible sign on the side of the bus that will display the hotel and town that each individual bus is travelling to. Aruba busses are also a great way to have an informal tour! Don’t hesitate to ask your driver questions if you need to know where your stop is, or if you’re unsure of whether you have chosen the right bus. They will gladly help you.
Please note, however, that the Aruba public transport buses do not operate 24 hours a day.
