St Lucia has a bus service that consists of mini-vans that operate only during daylight hours. There are no schedules and outside of the Castries / Gros Islet corridor service can be quite infrequent.
the mini-bus system does operate in the evenings, especially in the north, it is just limited and sporadic.
during the day, the mini-bus system is a great, cheap way to get around, especially in the north of the island where service is more freguent. Look for the mini-buses with the M license plate and just flag them down from the side of the road. They will pretty much stop anywhere along their route, just tell the driver "Stopping Driver" near where you want to stop.
Nope, they aren't like the Reggae Bus - what a trip that is! They are small 15 passenger vans that they pack as many as possible into so they become more like a 20 passenger van. Very different experience than the Reggae bus but extremely cultural nonetheless.
Bon jou Billy TP,
In Soufriere there is an old van painted up reggae/hippie vibe with flowers, etc... that takes groups in & around around the Heritage Site region - Sulpher Springs, Ladera, Soufriere town, etc...
