It's a number 17, but from the West bus station (opposite the public market on Market Street).
The East bus station serves the North and East of the island, and is located by the ARG.

I do appreciate the help of those that know, then when I step onto the pier, I just start walking the direction I already want to go! Makes me feel like a local! Thanks for the bus depot help! AliaJ.
Hello again Mizgeorge, I have another question. Once we have visted Nelson's Dockyard we might like to walk to a beach. Is there one within walking distance?
Also I read that the Dow's Hill Interpretive Centre is several clicks down the road on the way to Shirley Heights. Does a bus go there? Is the road uphill steep? Would we have to walk a long distance if dropped off on the main road by the bus? My husband uses walking sticks in rough places! Thanks again for your help. AliaJ.
The Interpretation Centre is a fair way up the hill. and it is pretty steep in places. There's no bus going up there, but a taxi would be only a few dollars, and you could keep it to go on up to the top for the view from Shirley Heights.
Good morning Mizgeorge, my question today is this: We are advised to only use taxis that are licensed, and the drivers, members of the official taxi association. Where on or in the taxi will we see this designation? We want to take the "official" taxis. Thanks again, you are making our trip so much eaiser! AliaJ.
It's in the front window of any cab. That said, pretty much all cabs are licensed, and they're not allowed to pick up at the port, or most other tourist spots, if they're not.
Don't bother! At US$9 per headntherebare far more interesting sites to view. We were VERY disappointed
I fear the last poster must have missed something at Nelson's Dockyard. There is so much history there, lovely places to stop and eat and drink, a vendor's mall etc. Yes, stop and talk to those ladies selling their wares. They are real characters and you may find something you can't live without! I can't wait to be there in a couple of weeks!
Nelson's Dockyard is a great place to spend the day and the night.
Neat stuff to see, the old shipyard is very interesting and the restaurants are great. If you like boats, yacht and ships you will be in Heaven!
Let alone a nest little town on the sea.
