Mexico has a vast inter-city bus system that offers inexpensive and convenient transportation. There are two grades of buses: First Class has air conditioning and stewardess service, Second Class is the no frills option. As Second Class costs only slightly less, it is recommend that visitors to Mexico travel First Class. .
Three types of taxis exist- the ORANGE & WHITE fourdoor cabs offering comfort and metered rates; GREEN & WHITE, newer VW bugs with cheaper, metered rates; and YELLOW & WHITE, older VW bugs which offer the cheapest metered rates of all. However, a recent surge in petty crime has caused city authorities to recommend visitors use only ÒsitioÓ cabs, avoiding the roaming VW vehicles.
