Getting There & Away

La Plata’s bus terminal has plenty of connections to other parts of Argentina, plus a helpful website with links and information.

Grupo Plaza and Costera Metropolitana run frequent buses (AR$40, 1½ to two hours) between Buenos Aires and La Plata's bus station. Though the buses stop at many locations in Buenos Aires, the easiest place to get on and off is at Retiro, the start/end of the line. Buses leave approximately every 20 to 30 minutes until 10pm, with fewer departures on weekends.

La Plata is also served by Buenos Aires’ Línea Roca suburban train line, with half-hourly services from the Constitución station (with/without SUBE card AR$4/8, one hour 10 minutes).
