Open-Air Safari Buses
There are taxi drivers that run 'dollar rides' in safari buses on St. Thomas. A safari is a truck that has been outfitted with bench seating in the back. It is open air but covered. Not all safari buses are ‘dollar rides’, some are regular taxis. The ‘dollar rides’ do not have signs identifying them as such; however they generally run the same route as the public bus and pull in or close to bus stops. If in doubt ask the driver before boarding. Also ask where they are heading to make sure
they are going the route you want to go. Safaris can be a fun and inexpensive way to get around – on island time.
