To travel by bus or subte (underground metro) in Buenos Aires, you'll need to get a rechargeable SUBE travel card and charge it with credit. SUBE cards are available at subte stations, at our eight Tourist Assistance Centers and at many "kioskos" (corner shops selling confectionary and tobacco) throughout the city. To find your nearest point of sale, the SUBE website has a map of SUBE vendors.
Buenos Aires has licensed black and yellow taxis and in busy areas, you're unlikely to wait for more than a couple of minutes for one. Often the most comfortable way to get from A to B, they can be flagged down directly off the street on the right-hand side - you can tell if one is available if the ‘libre’ (free) sign is lit up in the windscreen. Licensed taxis run on meters, and fares are exclusively in Argentine pesos (ARS $). Private hire taxis called remises can be booked in advance through agencies, and you can also book regular taxis using the city government's mobile e-hailing app BA Taxi, available for Android and iPhone.
