Transportation around the City
The Buenos Aires metro -- called the subte -- is the fastest, cheapest way to get around. Buses are also convenient, though less commonly used by tourists. Get maps of metro and bus lines from tourist offices and most hotels.
Buenos Aires has about 140 bus lines that run 24 hours a day. The fare is 1.10 pesos and up, depending on the distance you're traveling. You'll pay your fare inside the bus at an electronic ticket machine that accepts only coins and provides change. Many bus drivers will tell you the fare for your destination and let you know when to get off, but most speak only Spanish. Locals are just as helpful and will sometimes make an almost comical effort to ensure you don't get lost.
