    Buses in Nevis

    The 'bus station' in Charlestown

    Buses in Nevis are privately owned but organised by the government. They run fairly regularly from town either towards Newcastle or in the opposite direction (towards the Baths then up the hill). Fare depends on the journey but I usually paid 2.50EC (Eastern caribbean dollars) to get from town to Morning Star which is about a 10 to 15 minute bus journey.

    The buses themselves are more like minivans, but very well kept, usually air conditioned, and the bus driver usually has some elaborate stereo system/ TV situated at the front (wonder what they keep their eyes on!) Each bus is named by their driver and is decorated accordingly.

    Ensure that you ask the bus driver where its going before you hop on. There are no official bus stops but some points which are commonly stopped at. If unsure, just ask the driver

    I strongly recommend hiring a jeep if you intend to explore Nevis.. even for a day. The main road is only paved adequately until you reach Gingerland, then you're on your own.. particularly bad for the underside of a car. Exploring the villages is extremely rewarding and using a jeep will allow you to reach areas comparatively difficult to traverse in your typical saloon car.

    Car hire is not exactly cheap however. I hired my Suzuki Vitara jeep from Striker's Car Rental which is just opposite the road leading up to the Zetlands on the way to Gingerland. (I think near the Montpelier estate, but don't quote me on that).

    I paid about 600EC for 5 days or so (at a reduced rate). They drive on the left hand side of the road (alike in the UK), but the car was a left hand drive (in comparison to right hand drive in the uk).. common to most vehicles in order to accommodate the american tourists.
