GETTING AROUND THE ISLAND
St. Croix is an island located in the U.S. Virgin Islands. In order to explore the sights and see everything it has to offer, it would be a great idea to rent a car once you’ve arrived on the island.
The average taxi ride costs about $25 and takes around 45 minutes to arrive once the call has been made.
Transportation is available in the form of buses and vans if you need to move around between the University of the Virgin Islands and the other towns on the island. Their services are also available for use within the towns themselves. These VITRAN busses and taxi vans are located at some street corners and bus shanties, and are offered at a price of $1 to $2.
