Getting around

The most important local bus for travelers is the route between the bus terminal and downtown. From the terminal, climb the exit ramp to Avenida de las Américas, which crosses the train tracks on a bridge. On this bridge is a bus stop, where a westbound (to your right) bus, usually signed ‘Centro, ’ will take you to Parque Cevallos for $0.20.

Buses marked ‘Terminal’ leave from the Martínez side of Parque Cevallos. Buses to the suburb of Ficoa also leave from this park. A block away is Bolívar, which has buses to the suburb of Miraflores running along it. Buses to the Atocha suburb (for more quintas) leave from 12 de Noviembre and Sevilla or Espejo.
