Can you take a bus anywhere in Aruba?

Does Aruba have a developed public transport system (buses) other than pricey taxis? Can you take a bus anywhere around the island? If yes ... what is the fare price?

You can take buses to/from the hotel area to the downtown area. The price is $2 roundtrip.

If you want to see other parts of the island then you will need to hire a taxi or rent a car.

That link doesn't seem to be working - at least not for me. Even when I come thru the "front door" the fare page is blank. Can anyone else see it?

The public transportation in Aruba is safe and reliable (and relatively inexpensive.)

However, if you feel like being adventurous for a day or two, perhaps renting a car of Jeep would be ideal for you.

Hope this helps.

Enjoy Aruba!
