Maputo’s long-distance bus depot is about 7km from the centre. Most departures are between 5am and 11am. Taxis bring you inside, directly to your bus. Chapas (Mtc7, 30 minutes to one hour) are marked 'Zimpeto' or 'Zona Verde'. All stop on Avenida de Moçambique at the corner of Rua Gago Coutinho, from where it's a short walk to the bus area.
Fresh bread and various snacks are sold on the sidewalk just outside the Junta terminal.
