At the main local bus stop, Codao del Sur and Ómnibus 3 de Mayo run hourly buses to Cerro Catedral. Codao uses Av de los Pioneros, while 3 de Mayo takes Av Bustillo.

From 6am to midnight, municipal bus 20 leaves the main bus stop every 20 minutes for the attractive lakeside settlements of Llao Llao and Puerto Pañuelo. Bus 10 goes to Colonia Suiza 14 times daily. During summer three of these, at 8:05am, noon and 5:40pm, continue to Puerto Pañuelo, allowing you to do most of the Circuito Chico using public transportation.

Practical Tip: Bariloche Bus Cards

Bariloche’s local buses work with Sube magnetic cards (www.sube.gob.ar), available from kiosks at Av Bartolomé Mitre 91 and Moreno 480, and Moreno 69 and Morales 501, respectively. You can also pick up handy horarios (schedules) for all destinations from the bus terminal. Cards cost AR$60 (recharged with as much credit as you want). For most routes a ride will cost AR$19, with AR$42 being the highest fare. Some hostels loan cards to guests on payment of a deposit.

Car & Motorcycle

Bariloche is loaded with the standard car-rental agencies and is one of the cheapest places to rent vehicles in the country. Prices vary greatly depending on season and demand, but usually come in around AR$700 per day, with unlimited mileage.
