Land

The public transport of greater use is the urban bus, which operates 24 hours a day, and which allows different points of the city and Greater Buenos Aires to be connected. The other media used to access the city is the rail network, which has the main hub in Buenos Aires. Buenos Aires also has a network of bike lanes, stimulating the use of the bicycle as a healthy mode of transport.

 


The underground network is another means of transport used. Opened in 1913, it currently has 6 lines and 90 stations. On March 20, 2017, the Carlos Jáuregui station was inaugurated, which pays tribute to the first Argentinian LGBT activist, at the intersection of Santa Fe and Pueyrredón avenues.

 

 

River
The city's port is the largest in the country. Its connection points are ports that receive aliscafos and ferries, mainly Uruguayans from Colonia, Montevideo and Punta del Este. During the cruise season, which begins in November and ends in April, approximately 500,000 tourists arrive at the Benito Quinquela Martín Maritime Terminal.
