Express Bus

These buses will take you over the entire island. They are not in the best shape and riding one can be confusing. The bus stop area is on Revelos Street in front of Enriquillo Park, area because there is no office or station. It is very crowded and fumey (is that a word?).

Watch your belongings. There are many thieves in that area. It will seem like there is no order at all. Just give yourself enough time to understand what is happening and to get on the correct bus.

It is a true experience that one should have. Some buses are very old and rickety and others are quite nice and could even have air conditioning. These buses are very inexpensive and collect the fare after departure. Make sure you have the correct change as some collectors will not make change.

Example trip:La Romana from Santo Domingo is about $3USD (2006), buses leave every hour from 5 AM to 9 PM, takes a little under 2 hours, stopping at Camino Ave. Return is the same.
