Getting around


Bus & tram

Bus & taxi

For about M$8, local buses go everywhere, but the slightly pricier route taxis are much quicker. To get to the Central Camionera take any ‘Buena Vista, ’ ‘Centro’ or ‘Central Camionera’ bus from Calle 2a, east of Av Constitución. Alternately, take a gold-and-white ‘Mesa de Otay’ route taxi from Av Madero between Calles 2a and 3a (M$10). Regular taxis will charge about M$100.

To get to the airport, take any ‘Aeropuerto’ blue-and-white bus (M$5) from the street just south of the San Ysidro border taxi stand; from downtown, catch it on Calle 5a between Avs Constitución and Niños Héroes. Sharing can reduce the cost of a taxi (about M$150, if hailed on the street).

Tijuana taxis often lack meters, but most rides cost about M$60 or less. However, beware of the occasional unscrupulous taxi driver and make sure to agree to a fare beforehand to avoid misunderstandings.
