Bus & tram


Vitran (774-5678; fare US$1) operates buses over the length of the island. Look for the bus stop signs on Rtes 30 and 38. ‘Dollar’ buses (aka ‘safaris’) also stop along the routes. These vehicles are open-air vans that hold 20 people. They look like taxis, except they’re filled with locals instead of sunburned tourists. Flag them down by flapping your hand, and press the buzzer to stop them when you reach your destination. The fare is US$2.
