Public transport in Lima

Public transport in Lima

Micro Buses or Combi Vans are small vans often packed full of people. Formerly you could stop them at any point along the main travel routes, lately however, the government has clamped down and insists that they only stop at defined "paraderos", bus stops, at least in the more upscale parts of the city like Miraflores and San Isidro. In a combi you usually pay between 0.50-1.80 soles. You won't need to haggle over the fare. There are also medium and large buses, they operate the same as the micro buses but tend to be a little slower and are possibly safer. On the side of every bus or van you will find written the names of the major avenues it travels along, also the conductors generally lean out the door of the bus yelling the names of its destinations. If this doesn't make sense, ask the conductor. Metropolitano is a rapid transport bus system. This bus system is modern with wheel chair access. The buses are folding and express routes have their own dedicated lanes on express ways. Rechargable cards are used as tickets with a minimum purchase price of 5 soles.
