BUENOS AIRES ARGENTINA TRANSPORT - BUENOS AIRES

Buenos Aires Argentina TransportBuenos Aires Transport - Don’t worry if you don’t want to drive you don’t have to because there is public transportation available. There are several bus companies that work along the whole country reaching several cities and interconnecting them all. As long as buses are concerned, the fee is related to the stations traveled and it must be paid by coins in automatic machines. It is not necessary to have exact change because the machines return money, but it is necessary to have coins because the driver does not change bills. The bus is also a very nice way to see the city.

You can also get around by taxis. Within the City of Buenos Aires there are 32.000 taxis. They are painted yellow and black. Buenos Aires also has a subway system. It was founded in 1913, and was the first subway of Latin America. It is one of the quickest ways of traveling in the city. This system currently includes 80 stations and moves more than 250 million passengers per year. The ticket fare is $ ,70 and subway services operate from 6:00 AM to 11:00 PM Monday through Saturday and 8:00 AM to 10:00 PM on Sundays. Tickets are purchased in the subway stations.

The Train is a good alternative to get out of the metropolitan area. Lines going north depart from Retiro station and lines headed south leave from Constitución station. The Federico Lacroze and Once stations are the starting points for trains headed northwest and southeast respectively.

No matter which means of transportation you decide to use during your visit be sure to take the necessary precautions.
