Hi Franck!

Buses are cheap compared to Europe and run frequently across the island, with Port Louis being the main hub.

A one way bus ride from Port Louis to Black River takes around 1-1,5 hours depending on route and destination in Black River. The fare would be around Rs 25-30 per way (EUR 0,65-0,75) and you buy the ticket from the conductor (not the driver) onboard.

It is wise to make use of the Express buses (where available) rather than the standard services as the routing tend to vary a lot with standard services.

As an example, an Express bus from Grand Baie to Port Louis will take you less than an hour but with a standard service it can easily take 2,5 hours depending on route.
