Airport transfers are usually USD$30-35 by taxi to locations between Cave Hill Campus and Holetown, St. James.
For more information on taxis please see https://barbados.org/tours/barbadostaxis.htm#.XidTghdKhDU.
The UWI, Cave Hill Campus is on a major public transport route. Public buses (blue buses) and ZRs/ route taxis are available near most hotels on the South and West Coasts and Bridgetown. A typical fare is approx. USD$2.00.
The Local Organizing Committee (LOC) should be able to provide some level of transport by shuttle to and from conference venue(s) and local suggested hotels daily but we will need to coordinate these when you register for the conference. If you are staying in private accommodation you may need to take a taxi, rent a car or use the public transport system. Most coastal locations are on an accessible bus route with nearby taxi stands/ dispatches.
