Travel Guide: Getting Around

12th Sep 2015 2:37am | By Editor

Buenos Aries is well connected to the rest of the continent.

Getting There

Fly

Buenos Aries boasts excellent air connections to the rest of the continent, and to Europe and North America. There are also direct flights from South Africa and Australasia.

The city’s main international airport – Aeropuerto Internacional Ministro Pistarini – is known locally as Ezeiza, while most internal flights leave from Qeroparque Jorge Newberry (known locally as Aeroparque).

The easiest way into town from the airport is via the efficient shuttle service, the local bus takes twice as long, but is much cheaper, taxis cost a good deal more.

 

Getting Around

Bus

City bus routes are numerous and confusing, that said, they are a good and cheap way of getting around the city. Pick up a bus guide from a pavement kiosk or ask advice on the major routes at a tourist information centre.

Metro

Buenos Aries has a good, and relatively inexpensive underground system, with five lines intersecting in the centre of the city.

Taxi

Buenos Aries streets are clogged with yellow and black taxis – making them a quick and relatively cheap way to get around. Hailing a cab on the street is generally safe, though some problems have been reported by single women travelling at night. Telephone taxi companies, known as remise, are considered safer.

Bike

You’ll see plenty of locals riding wide-handled bikes along Buenos Aries’ boulevards. Cycling is a wonderful way to see the city – but can be deadly in the city’s notorious traffic! Best bet is to take one of the city’s bike tours.
