How To Take The Bus

  1. Take the bus at the terminal - the best place to take the bus is at the terminal since that's where it makes official stops.
  2. Know the final destination - the sign on the bus is normally the final destination but your destination may be between that stop.
  3. Pay on the bus - bus fares are normally paid in route to destination and collected in cash — US Dollars or Belize Dollars.
  4. Watch your luggage - it's perfectly safe to travel with your luggage but buses can be so full that people have to stand up so keep your luggage close if possible.

Types Of Buses

There are two type of buses in Belize:

  1. Regular Bus - Public buses that stop at every village to pickup or drop off passengers.
  2. Express Bus - Public buses that go directly to the destination without stopping at every village.

Using the example below, O.WALK EXPRESS means it's traveling directly to Orange Walk without stopping.
