There are two types of buses you can use to navigate the city: rapid buses have their own express traffic lane to cut journey time while regular buses run on normal roads.

Taxis are plentiful and affordable. From central Bogotá you can walk to most destinations and may not need to use taxis or buses, depending on your location.
