Bus Service

Dominica has a reliable public transportation system consisting of primarily private minibus operators. Bus stops can be found at designated points throughout the city depending on your destination. The bus fares are standardized and range from EC$1.50 to EC$10.25 according to the specific route. Bus rotation is fairly frequent throughout the day, but this method of transportation is not suitable for night travel.
