Puerto Vallarta does not provide printed bus routes and bus fares information for tourists. But we will show you how to ride the bus all over town like a local. We will also tell you how much it will cost you to get to your destination.
Nowadays we rent a car when we’re in Puerto Vallarta, but at various times over the years we took the opportunity to travel with our daughters by bus and explore the various routes all over Puerto Vallarta to include areas north and south of the city. By hopping on and off buses all over town and taking different routes we helped our girls demystify the public transportation system and learn first hand about Puerto Vallarta bus routes and bus fares. Along the way we experienced a bit of trial and error, but also plenty of fun. Sometimes we’d hop on different buses just to view the route and see where we’d end up. After all, life’s an adventure! Why not explore? Whenever we used public transportation to get to an actual desired destination but were not quite sure if we had boarded the correct vehicle or not, our nerves still remained unrattled. We just kept in mind the worst-case scenario: we’d simply find ourselves embarking on an unexpected but very interesting and scenic tour of a different part of the city, after which time we’d get off at the very same point where our journey began. Now when our girls take friends to Puerto Vallarta they feel very confident using a series of public buses and various routes to travel to destinations all over Banderas Bay. Whenever they need a refresher on Puerto Vallarta bus routes and bus fares, they know they can simply revisit this page! For them it’s a bit like having their mom and dad sitting right there beside them reminding them how to get from Point A to Point B. We hope that you too will find that public transportation in Puerto Vallarta is easy to use.
