A number of bus lines provide frequent service—about once every half hour during daylight and early evening hours—between Belize City and the Cayo. National Transportation Services is the largest company, but there are several smaller lines that operate on the Western Highway routes, including T-Line, BBOC (a drivers' co-op), Guerra's, Shaw, and others. Cost between Belize City and San Ignacio is about BZ$6 on a local, and BZ$8 on an express. Buses are typically old U.S. school buses and are not air-conditioned. Except for National Transportation (usually called National Transport), some of the smaller bus companies do not have regular offices or bus terminals.
