Getting Around Mexico City

You can recognize the public Metrobus by its distinctive red and white coloring, yet you should expect these buses to be crowded, especially if you board from MEX. You can purchase smartcards for a handful of pesos, but taxis may provide a more reliable and convenient option instead.

In fact, most travel guides advise international travelers arriving in Mexico City to take official taxis, which are easy to board from the arrivals terminal. There will be signs directing travelers to the taxi boarding zones, and you can even pre-pay according to your destination.

Authorized taxi services at MEX include:

While you can also access the subway from Terminal 1, this may not be an ideal option for travelers who only speak English, are traveling with children, or who have a number of bags to carry.
