Punta Cana to Santo Domingo by public transport

There is also an intercity bus called the Expreso Bávaro, which departs 6 times a day from Punta Cana to Santo Domingo. The last bus each day leaves Verón in Punta Cana at 4:20 pm, which is about a 20-minute ride in a Cocotours van from Punta Cana airport.

This means that if your flight into Punta Cana lands after 2 pm, you may likely not be able to make it in time to catch that last bus, in which case you could get Cocotours to drive you to the town of Higüey, a 40-minute drive from Punta Cana airport, where you could catch one of the many APTPRA buses to Santo Domingo which run every 15-20 minutes until the last departure at 8 pm.
