Bus transportation from airport--

Isn't is possible to take a bus from the airport to Rodney Bay? The shuttles and taxis are so expensive.

you could - theoretically - take the bus from the airport to RB. However - buses do not run on any schedule, they run when they are full, so you would be waiting on the highway for a bus that had space for your party - along with luggage, which would cost you extra. You would need a space for each person and either hold your luggage on your lap or buy a spot for each piece of luggage - good luck finding a bus that has that much room that just left Vieux Fort for Castries.

Once in Castries, you would need to change buses to the Castries - RB bus - again, waiting for a bus with space and buying however many seats. That one would be easier as the route starts in Castries, whereas at the airport you are hoping for a bus that is already in route.

It wuold be signifigantly less expensive, but also very difficult and time consuming- potentially the rest of the day. You could take a taxi to the bus stand in Vieux Fort and buy your seats from there, thus guaranteeing however many seats you need, however you are still waiting on the bus to fill up and the changing in Castries.

Check RedJet.com for info on their shuttle from UVF to Castries - I think it runs about $15Us pp - not sure of the times, but worth checking out.

Good luck.
