Private minibuses in Jamaica, also called coasters, serve all the towns and villages in Jamaica.

You’ll easily identify them by the red license plates with the initials PPV, public passenger vehicle, or JUTA insignia, which stands for Jamaica Union of Travelers Association.

Regarding schedules, they just depart to their point of origin when buses are full, which are often overcrowded.


Minibuses charge J$ 100 per 50 km.


Some hotels in Kingston offer shuttle transportation to and from the Airport.

Please, ask to your hotel for further information about bookings and schedules.
