Busses travel to many parts of Buenos Aires and are the second most convenient way to get around the city after the efficient subway service. Most tourists do not get around to learning about the bus system in Argentina because taxis are relatively inexpensive.
These urban buses are one of the most popular methods of transportation in Buenos Aires. The bus system is easy to understand and navigate, even for those unfamiliar with the area. Information on the bus routes and procedures are easily accessible with information posted at each bus stop. Each transit line is easily identifiable by a distinct color. Bus fare is easy to obtain, as the fare is paid to the driver or into machines at the front of the bus. It is best to have exact change as you board the bus, so some advanced planning is helpful.
In Buenos Aires, the colectivo service (also called diferencial ) offers more amenities for urban travelers. Seats are more spacious and comfortable than the micro omnibus, and seating is guaranteed. These buses follow more direct routes, making for faster travel, and only aquire new passengers when seating is available.
