Before 1955, public transportation in Barbados was provided by several public concessionaires, licensed by the Director of Highways and Transport to operate on specific routes.

The private concessionaires were experiencing difficulties maintaining their bus fleets, and by 1955, the Government of Barbados took over 116 buses from eight concessionaires.

These buses were used by the newly established Transport Board on routes formerly held by the private concessionaires.

The Transport Board also offers a Scenic Tour of the island. This is an inexpensive way to see the island and a chance to interact with locals. View the upcoming tours.

The Rocklyn bus is a brightly colored open-sided bus reminiscent of those typically used in Barbados in the 60s and 70s.

This is now used by the Transport Board for scenic bus rides and charters.
