There are two types of buses in Mauritius, standard and express. Use the express ones if you can. They are airconditionned and much faster since they don't stop every few meters like the standard ones do. Buses operate from 5.30 am - 8.00 pm in built up areas and 6.30 am - 6.30 pm in the countryside, however there's also a late service between Port Louis and Curepipe until 11:00 pm. To give you an idea about the journey times: a trip from the airport to Port Louis might take up to 80 minutes.

Usually, there are buses every fifteen minutes or so on the major routes. Express buses are less frequent. In country areas, buses can be few and far between.

Keep in mind that there is no direct bus from one end of the island to another so you might need to transfer. To make things even more complicated, there are 2 main bus stations in Port Louis: one for buses going to the south of the island (Victoria square), and another one for buses going to the north (Imigration square). There is a bus shuttle between the two stations, but the distance can also be walked.
