Buses on Grenada are reliable, affordable, and will allow you to ride like a real Grenadian. Bus routes serve most of the island, which makes them just as popular with tourists as they are with locals. Travel short distances or use the buses to get to popular spots across the island.
Public buses and mini-vans make frequent stops between the island's major cities, including routes from Grand Anse to Saint George's. Buses operate daily on a regular schedule from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., except on Sundays when no bus service is available. The main bus terminal operates out of the capital city of St. George's, where tourists can find buses traveling to different parts of the island. You should be able to spot the bus that's bound for your destination because all routes are clearly marked at the terminal, and stickers on buses are printed with terminating stops.
Mini-vans may be a little harder to identify because they are smaller and because many don't have signs indicating final destinations. These mini-vans, or mini-buses don't have a uniform color and often don't run on a specific timetable, but you can recognize them by their number plates, which must start with the letter "H." Privately owned buses are endowed with names and/or slogans, such as "Humble they self" or "Too much ah dem." If you have problems finding the right bus, don't be shy about asking for help. Grenada is known to be one of the most friendly islands in the Caribbean, and most locals are more than willing to lend a helping hand.

When hailing a bus, don't be surprised if driver shouts something at you as the bus slows down. He or she is only asking if you want to get on the bus. Many people use the bus as a primary means of transportation, so the buses tend to be pretty crowded. But if the bus stops and looks full, get on anyway because passengers will usually make room for you. If you want to stop before reaching the bus terminal, knock in the roof of the bus. The cost of your journey will only be about $1(EC) to $4.50(EC), and tourists should try to avoid paying in U.S. dollars.
While aboard one of the island buses or mini-buses, vacationers can have a lot of fun while traveling to many destinations. There is often live entertainment as you drive, which usually consists of typical Caribbean music. Longer bus rides can go by in no time while you enjoy the company of Grenada's friendly people.
