Due to the small size of Cayman Brac and Little Cayman, neither island has public transportation. Grand Cayman, on the other hand, has a public bus system that services George Town and the surrounding area.
Buses on Grand Cayman are actually mini buses that carry up to 12 passengers costing anywhere from $2.50 to $5(USD). Buses run on eight different routes that are color coded for easy recognition Monday through Saturday. The main bus depot is located in George Town and buses start departing from there each morning at 6:00 a.m. The last bus pulls in at 11:00 p.m. From there passengers may take advantage of the following schedules.
The bus from George Town to West Bay runs every 15 minutes and the fare is just under $2(USD) per person each way. This line runs from 6:00 a.m. until 11:00 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and until midnight on Friday and Saturday.

Keep in mind that the buses are frequently used by locals who are commuting to and from work, and they won't stop if they are full. This means if you have somewhere important to be at a specific time, you may want to arrive at your stop early enough to catch the bus before the one you actually need.
