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.
