I know this subject has been discussed, but in a topic search I could not find any info. We are taking the 9 am express bus from B.C. to Chetumal..from the bus station as the Lina Dora and Ado leave to late. Problem is The Lina Dora and ADO leave Chetumal to early..5 and 6 am. Does anyone know what times the Novelo express returns from Chetumal, and if you can get on it at the boarder..as we are actually going to Bacalar and intercepting the bus at the boarder would save alot of time.

did you look online? i know that ado has a website, and novelo might as well.

the kicker with bus travel is just this...i find i just sorta go and wing it...worst case scenario i sit in a terminal people watching for a couple hours.

My bus tip of the universe...Bring baby wipes and/or cleansing cloths. ALWAYS. Bus terminals and travelling by bus here can get really gross sometimes...bathrooms are LEGENDARY in some places....but just generally being able to wipe the grime off yourself if you are sitting around for a while goes a long way toward keeping ones sanity.

happy trails!

I travel by bus ALOT here, and dont mind it, but the express is soooo much nicer and not much more. We only have 3 days off work so time is important. I did find a schedule for Novelo online, but it was years old, with the changes in the last few years I doubt its accurate.

Novelo's of course went bankrupt several years ago, taking millions of Belizean taxpayers' money with it. Its successor is National Transport, and I guess some people still refer to it as Novelo's, like they call the bus terminal on Collet Canal Novelo's.

Here's a Northern Highway bus schedule provided by the BTB, but it's about a year old. You might check with the BTB and see if they have a more current schedule. It doesn't include Linea Dorada or San Juan tourist buses.
