port vila bus timetable

Hi, I have read you can catch a local passenger bus up to the cascade water falls entrance. Does anyone know where we can get a copy of the timetable so we can get an idea of how often they run etc?

Hi the buses don't run to a timetable it works on a 'flag one down when you need one' style arrangement....when you think bus think mini van rather than the buses we have here. Buses are not scheduled but you won't have to wait more than a minute or two if wanting to go from town to the cascades, in fact they will most likely stop and ask if you need a ride, that's been our experience anyway, it's very and I mean VERY laid back :)

Yes Alida, definitely nothing like timetables for PV buses. They are mini-vans, sometimes quite beat up, which have a 'B' on the number plate. Taxis have 'T'. You just flag them down as they drive past, agree on a price (someone else will hopefully let you know the going price at the moment) then hop in. You might go straight to your destination, or you might be lucky enough to enjoy a tour of the town as they drop off and pick up others. Don't panic, you will arrive at your destination eventually. Have a chat with the other passengers and enjoy the tour. The Cascades are beautiful and well worth a visit.

Cheers, Barbara

NO bus time tables but the friendly bus and mini drivers will be more than helpful but ask at your hotel a price idea of the cost to the cascades which is worth it but its a pretty good hike from the bottom.Some tours will do it locally meaning book locally that include Lunch thats also nice that is also very well priced
