"Sites for BUS/guagua information" Dominican Republic Transportation Tip by bpolt

Dominican Republic Transportation: 101 reviews and 69 photos

I cannot say whether the information is up to date, but these sites seem useful. I used them recently, February, 2011, in planning a trip that I have not yet taken. I have read that the A/C may be turned up high, so have a wrap handy. A hat often helps, too, on chilly buses.

There is reportedly excellent bus service from Santo Domingo, and probably from Santiago, by Caribe Tours. Check the site for other departure and destination locations. Reserve at the site.

There are schedules for buses & guaguas at OR
Either one gets you to the same site.

Start Page: “Welcome to, the online bus schedule for Central and South America, Mexico, the Caribbean and the Balearic Islands. The online schedule includes bus, train and boat connections between more then 2900 places for your travel in the following countries. All time tables are also available by cell phone.”

Click on the flag and name of the country you are interested in.

At the country site English, Spanish, French and several other languages may also be chosen.

List your start and destination. Replace the current time and date with the departure time you wish to check. You will get the bus schedule for one or two departures. Click on "Earlier” or “Later” to see more. Often with a few clicks you can see that the bus leaves every hour or every 15 minutes or at some other regular intervals.

The times are on a 24 hour schedule, so 1:00pm is 13:00, 2:00pm is 14:00, etc.
Try entering 23:00 and then moving down the schedule, using the “Later” button, to see the time for the first bus the next morning.
