The least expensive way to get around Belize on a day to day basis is by bus. As buses are the primary mode of transportation for most Belizeans, routes run on regular schedules and will stop to pick up or drop off passengers at most any location along the way. Every bus operates with a driver and a conductor. Luggage and bags are handled by the conductor. He or she will also come to passengers while the bus is in transit to collect the fare. As bus “stations” move about and schedules shift slightly through the year, visitors will find these logistical details answered most accurately by any taxi driver or most any person on the street.
Belize City and Belmopan serve as the central hubs for bus transportation. While buses travel to and from each town and district several times daily, many of the more remote villages see only one bus out and one bus in each day.

There are two water taxi ports in Belize City. One is located on the North East side of the historical Swing Bridge and has boats going to different islands throughout the day. This location falls under the Belize Water Taxi Association. The other terminal is for the company Triple J and is located on Southern Foreshore almost directly in front of the historical Bliss Institute.
Boats may also be chartered from these locations.
