Buenos Aires Transport


Buenos Aires Transport - Buenos Aires, the glamorous city in Argentina, is a beautiful city filled with breathtaking architecture and deep Spanish colonial history. With charming neighborhoods and old historic districts offering antiques stores, restaurants, and tango halls – this beautiful city offers a unique opportunity for travelers and shoppers to experience the absolute best that Argentina offers.

Argentina’s main airport is the Ezeiza Ministro Pistarini (EZE) about a 45 minute drive west of Buenos Aires. From the airport, taxis offer transportation to the city center. Travel Agencies typically warn travelers to take only officially sanctioned transportation only, no private services, for your own safety. Manuel Tienda Leon offers buses and remises to and from the airport (11/4314-3636).

The best way to travel around Buenos Aires is through the Metro – it is the cheapest and quickest way to get to just about any neighborhood. Five Metro lines connect all areas of the city. Single ride passes are very reasonably, and 10 ride passes are also offered. The A-line is a highly recommended ride – as it runs along Avenida de Mayo, the A line features old wooden trains in a station (Peru) that maintains its original ornamentation and old-world style. Keep in mind that the metro lines are not air conditioned and can get very hot in mid-summer rush hour.

Bus lines that run on the main boulevards follow a complicated, divided grid system that can be confusing for many tourists. Poles identify the numbered routes, which identify the locations and neighborhoods that the bus accesses.

Taxis are plentiful in Buenos Aires with inexpensive fares, as long as you stick to using Radio-taxis, which can be recognized by the plastic light boxes on the rooftops. Ordinary taxis are famous for taking routes that run up fares, especially for obvious tourists. Reputable taxi services in Buenos Aires include Taxi Premium (11/4374-6666), and Radio Taxi Blue (11/4777-8888).

Car rentals are available throughout the city, however driving in Buenos Aires can be extremely difficult and is not recommended.

Walking Buenos Aires on foot is fairly easy, since most of the city center is small enough to explore on foot. Other neighborhoods can be easily accessed through the metro, bus, or taxi. Buenos Aires is configured in a grid that fans out from Plaza de Mayo, so navigating the city is fairly easy.
