Privately owned minibuses, complete with music and unusual names, provide inexpensive, though sporadic, service around St. Kitts and Nevis. Taking a trip aboard the "Who Loves You Baby?" could be an inexpensive and memorable way of getting to your destination on the island.
Bus transportation on St. Kitts and Nevis is unscheduled and sometimes unreliable, but buses are plentiful in the capitals. Buses near the ferry terminal in Basseterre will generally take you to the South and West of St. Kitts, while buses found at Baker's Corner will take you east and north. Another fun way of catching the bus outside the city is by flagging it down. Buses do not generally do full circles on either island and may run in one direction. Service to areas close to hotels will be limited, so consider whether a taxi would be a better option if you are staying in those areas. Both islands are small, but getting stranded in a remote part of the islands would require a lengthy walk.
Buses are easiest to catch in the busy mornings and during the afternoon but may be difficult to find past 7 p.m. or 8 p.m. on a weekday. Fares will usually be around $1(USD).
Look for buses such as the "Rude Boy," "Zion Train," "Dem Say," and "Reggae Master" with their green license plates for an adventurous experience while on St. Kitts and Nevis.
