Taking the bus in Falmouth Harbour is probably a little different than what you are used to in your home town, but it is a possible option for those looking to save money and avoid driving on foreign soil.
Buses on Antigua are privately owned, and range from minivans to small buses that run on pre-set routes, though the schedule itself is not set. You will simply have to wait at the nearest bus stop until the bus on your route drives by. Then, you can wave your hand and the bus will pull over and let you on if there is space.
Regular bus services are available in and around Falmouth Harbour as well as to English Harbour and St. Johns, where you may be able to connect to some smaller towns. The inter-town buses provide transport between all areas of the island except for Dickenson Bay, the rest of the north coast, or the airport.
The buses offer transportation every day of the week from very early in the morning at 5:30 a.m. until around dusk, but don't expect to take the bus on Sunday, when very few buses are available.
