    Default Bus service Boca Chica - Santo Domingo

    Dear all!

    A person needs to be on business in Santo-Domingo but wants to live in Boca Chica and to go to SD every day. Is it practically feasable?

    He does not want to risk driving and wants to use a bus. Is there any regular bus service between SD and BC?
    Schedule if possible? From where and to where?

    Will appreciate an insight.

    Tante grazie!

    yes...there is excellent bus service between B.C. and Santo Domingo. Last time i was there it was about 40 pesos.

    As far as schedule...the schedule is very dominican. You take the guagua for free from boca chica...at the highway you have to transfer. The guaguas usually dont leave until they are full. Try to take an express bus if you can. But that doesnt guarantee it willl run express.

    If your friend will have a car the drive from BC to SD is fairly easy and safe provided he will leave SD in plenty of time to be in BC before dark. If not, the guagua/mini-bus is a good second choice.

    Where is SD will your friend be working?

    This link is two years old so the fares have increased a bit but it will give you a general idea.

    No. He drinks. All good people drink. For this reason they are good.

    Well his best bet is to take the guagua/mini-bus to SD and a taxi to his job. I would think the total cost each way would be about 200 pesos. Total travel time each way is about an hour.

    200 pesos...each way?!

    Perhaps for the first day or week or so. But once this person gets to know his way around he can use the publicos in the capital for 5 pesos. You just have to know where you are going, speak some spanish and not mind being jammed in the back seat with 4 other people.

    Are you sure, jrzyguy? It's been a while since I used a carro público, but 5 pesos sounds very low to me.
