The Barbados Transport Board is a government own organization with responsibilities for bus Transportation in Barbados. The Transport Board started its bus operations on August 24, 1955, as a result of private concessionaires experiencing difficulties running and maintaining their bus fleets. The Government of Barbados took over 116 buses from eight concessionaires to start this service in 1955.
Today, the Transport Board has a fleet of 245 buses operating on 98 routes across the island making public transportation accessible to as many persons as possible. The Government of Barbados has maintained bus fares at $1.50 in order to facilitate travel to the average citizen.
The Board is committed to the development of the tourism product and to this end has been providing services to the Barbados Port Inc. transporting tourists from cruise ships to the cruise terminal and back. They also work with Foster & Ince, transporting tourists from the airport to the seaport and from seaport to the airport. The Transport Board provides a valuable service to the traveling public, the tourism sector and to the overall development of the Barbados economy.
The Transport Board now offers an Island Tour which forms part of our Charter services. The island tour caters to groups of up to 40 persons and the tour stops at Folkestone, Farley Hill, East Coast Road, Bathsheba, Bath, Three Houses Park, King George V Memorial Park and Foul Bay.
