Suva Bus Routes

Expat in Fiji

A daily challenge for a fresh expat is navigating the Suva bus routes system. Here are some bare basic facts that contribute to the complexities of catching a bus:

  1. Apparently there is one map of the bus routes on the back of a tourist brochure – somewhere. No one is quite sure where.
  2. There is no online information on bus routes.
  3. The buses are owned by several different companies so there is no central authority managing bus route information.
  4. Sometimes the bus doesn’t show up.
  5. Sometimes the bus takes an unexpected route.
  6. Sometimes the bus loses its sign.

My first piece of advice to you is not to Google your bus company. Or you may come across something like this…

Believe me, this is not the only one.

Anyway, let’s get into the need to know! Keep in mind that as per the factors above – buses are not an exact science, but below will provide you with a general summary of the buses and the areas they service.

Note: This document is a work in progress and will be updated regularly over 2016.

 

How to use this Document

Unfortunately, due to the limited capacities of a blog function I can not set up a proper database to share this information. I recommend using the “Ctrl+F” or ‘Find’ function to search for the name of the place you are looking to reach.

Districts of Suva

Suva Suburbs bus

This map shows the different districts of Suva.

Suva Central Bus Station is the most reliable place to get bus information, even though some of it hasn’t been updated since 2002. There is a map of Suva at the station and tables to list the bus routes.

It’s important to know the district of Suva you are going to so that you can identify your bus (e.g. Suva to Samabula). Bus rides in this district usually cost between $0.70-$1.10.

    I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your
    blog. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to
    come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to
    create your theme? Fantastic work!
