GETTING AROUND BUENOS AIRES


Check the interactive map


BA Cómo llego?
(How do I get there?) is an online map and downloadable app that can help you find the best way to get from A to B in the city, whether on public transport, by car or on foot. Simply input your starting point, your destination and choose how you want to travel, and the map will suggest the best routes. Use the map on the website or download the app.




Local transportation

Taxis

Buenos Aires is full of licensed black and yellow taxis. Often the most comfortable way to get from A to B, they can be flagged down directly off the street on the right-hand side – you can tell if one is available if the 'libre' (free) sign is lit up in the windscreen. Licensed taxis run on meters, and fares are exclusively in Argentine pesos (ARS $).

Private hire taxis called remises can be booked in advance through agencies, and you can also book regular taxis using the city government's mobile e-hailing app BA Taxi, available for Android and iPhone.

Subte (Underground train network)

To travel by bus or subte (underground metro) in Buenos Aires, you'll need to get a rechargeable SUBE travel card and charge it with credit.

SUBE cards are available at subte stations, at the eight Tourist Assistance Centers and at many "kioskos" (corner shops selling confectionary and tobacco) throughout the city. Cards can be charged with credit at all subte stations, national lottery outlets, and at some kioskos with automated terminals. To find your nearest point of sale, the SUBE website has a map of SUBE vendors.

The Buenos Aires subte is often the quickest way to get around the city, especially when travelling to and from the downtown area. There are six lines (lineas) A, B, C, D, E and H, which connect the city's main avenues, train stations and coach stations. Lines A, B, C, D and E converge in the center of the city.

Trains run every three to ten minutes depending on the line, from about 5.30am to 11.30pm Monday to Friday, 6.00am to midnight on Saturdays, and 8.00am to 10.30pm on Sundays and public holidays. The subte website has a detailed map of the network, and you can download a copy of the map as a jpg using this link.

Stations have free WiFi access.
