How The Buses Work in Grenada WI

Buses in Grenada West Indies are privately-owned vans that seat up to 16 but somehow the conductor fits up to 20 people. It’s a tight fit, with lots of shifting around to let passengers in and out. The owners of the buses – who are usually also the drivers – are accompanied by a conductor who sits beside the sliding side door, often with their head hanging out the window looking for passengers.

Bus schedules

Buses run from around 6:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. The Grand Anse route operates a little later, although service suffers substantially after it gets dark. If you go exploring outside of St. George’s/Grand Anse, make sure to return to your bus stop by 5:00 p.m. Make your travel arrangements appropriately. If you’re unsure, ask a conductor.

Catching the bus

The conductor scouts the roadside for passengers as they travel and will often call out to you, even if you’re not looking at him, and signals the driver to stop with a word or a snap of the fingers. And if you’re on the wrong side of the road, the conductor will stop traffic just for you.

Even though there are designated bus stops along the main roads every so often,  and of course the main bus terminals in St. George’s, Grenville, and Sauteurs. everyone – whether at a stop or on the main road – has a chance of having the bus stop for them. 

The buses are adaptable because the more passengers they can fit on board, the more money they will make. They also need to make the most of the limited number of daily runs on the route (they can’t just go whenever they like). And they surely make the most of it. 

Simply tap on the side surface or window of the bus as the bus approaches your destination, and the driver will pull over to the nearest safe area to let you down.

Departure from the Bus

You’d think we wouldn’t have to say anything about getting off the bus, but… There are no buttons, bells, or ropes to pull. Knock on the side or roof of the bus when you’re close to your destination, and they’ll pull over at the next stop. You’ll figure it out by watching what other passengers do.

If you’re not sure where you’re going, ask the conductor to notify you when the bus arrives — they’re usually fairly accommodating.
