Take the bus around parts of Aruba. The main depot is in Oranjestad and there are maps and bulletin boards to tell you how to get to places. Cost is $2US (2005 prices). You just hand the cash over to the driver. No fare box. He even gives change if necessary. Then go through the turnstyle, take a seat and hold on. The bus drivers are crazy. On our way back to Oranjestad, he even cut through this dirt road parking area just to avoid a traffic jam on the road. But it's a cheap mode of transport and that's a good thing in Aruba where things are quite expensive.
Busses run frequently between the resort district in Palm Beach and Eagle Beach to the Central Bus Station in Oranjestad. The bus transportation system is good, the busses are brand new, comfortable and mostly airconditioned. A return ticket Oranjestad Resort district will cost you $1,75.
The bus will take 10 minutes from the resort district to reach Oranjestad. A rise in travelling time will depend on rush hour traffic and the amount of people standing at the bus stops. A bus schedule can be given at the Central Bus Station or you can find a hug bus schedule at the bus stops infront of the hotels.
