If you've got big plans for traveling throughout Belize, the bus system is something to consider; however, if you're looking for a way to get around Orange Walk alone, you'll find the options to be lacking.
Varying from luxury coach buses to retired school buses from the U.S., the buses the travel throughout Belize do not play a major role in local transportation. Instead, they offer a way to get between the major cities. In Orange Walk, the bus station is located centrally near Town Hall along Northern Highway. Buses arrive and depart for Belize City and other stops along the way approximately every hour 5:30 a.m. and 9:00 p.m., costing anywhere from $2 to $25(USD) depending on your destination.
|Route||Beginning||Stops Along the Route||End|
|Intercity Northbound to Santa Elena||Belize City Terminal||Orange Walk Bus Terminal, Corozal Bus Terminal||Santa Elena Bus Terminal|
Be aware that buses are generally not air conditioned and almost always crowded, so the likelihood of your trip being comfortable and luxurious is slim. Even so, this is a great way to travel in Belize like the locals do.
