Mahaut Buses

People who have visited Dominica before will almost always recommend you take the bus at least once, for the unique experience of it all

Buses in Mahaut reflect the local culture wholly, as vibrant and welcoming as the town's population is known to be, and though the buses can be crowed, they are always fun.

Buses in town run Monday through Friday from 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., with limited services on Saturday. They are privately-owned vans rather than actual buses that have been painted bright colors and feature the name of the bus operator painted or printed across the window shield. Although each bus has a different owner, the rates have been pre-set by the government so there is no chance of you being taken advantage of when you're in need of a ride. Check the chart below for an idea of what you'll spend to ride the bus.
