Intercity Buses

The most important Bus Stations in the city are included in the map below, however, be aware that on many regularly traveled and heavy services routes, the same intercity buses may make stops at points within the city to onboard and offboard passengers.

Visitors to Mexico City will often find that daytrips to nearby towns and communities are richly rewarded. Most commonly, visitors will find themselves at the Centro de Autobuses del Norte for trips to Teotihuacan or at Taxqueña for trips to Morelos or Cuernavaca.

Those are just the two most common daytrips, and of course, hundreds of other destinations can be easily reached on what is usually exceptionally good intercity bus travel.
