Bus company's Some Are Tour Busses
  • Traveling by bus is one of the most efficient and
    economical ways to see Mexico.  Different parts
    of the World does not handle bookings for bus
    travel, but many operators of Mexico buses
    (especially the luxury buses) now have
    information about timetables and prices on the
    Web - in some cases you can even reserve your
    seats online.

  • ExtensiveYou can get to almost anywhere in
    Mexico by bus. In 1994, there were 841 Mexican
    bus companies with 43,850 buses according to the
    Iberoamerican Business Information and
    Documentation Center. Today the number is
    probably similar. While there has been a
    consolidation of ownership, parent companies,
    known as groups, usually maintain the original
    companies. Some bus lines in remote areas may
    have a single bus or two and only one route.
    Other companies have a large fleet of buses with
    an extensive network of routes.

  • ComfortableThis topic is covered more fully on
    the next page classes of busses. Briefly, the
    buses that are first-class and above are very
    comfortable second class buses vary greatly
    depending on the company and the area.
  • Cancun,
  • Campeche,
  • Merida,
  • Oaxaca,
  • Puebla,
  • Jalapa,
  • San Cristobel

  • EfficientMost bus lines are well run. For
    first-class and above, computers are used to book
    tickets and selecting seats. Luggage stored under
    the bus is quick available after you exit the
    bus. Employees at a ticket counter or in the
    boarding area will call out the names of a
    destinations cities shortly before departure in a
    style similar to vendors working in the stands of
    a sports stadium. Mexico City

1st 2nd CLASS
  • Tickets for these buses usually cannot be bought
    more than a short time in advance, usually around
    an hour beforehand. If you are at a ticket
    counter 15 minutes before departure there should
    not be a problem, unless it is a very busy time
    such as during Semana Santa. If the bus is about
    to depart or you catch a bus between stations,
    you can buy a ticket on the bus. While second
    class buses may often have passengers standing in
    the aisle along popular routes, they usually do
    not leave a bus station full, but fill as they
    pick up passengers at other locations. Save your
    tickets. Bus company inspector may border a bus
    and ask to see tickets.
  • Tickets for first class and above can be
    purchased in advance. This is not usually
    necessary, but for important trips such as
    connections to catch a flight, I do book in
    advance. When you arrive in a town and you
    certain of when you will be leaving, it may be a
    good idea to purchase your ticket to the next
    destination. Tickets can also be purchased at
    travel agencies. Ticket bus sells tickets online
    and at their offices in the Mexico City area for
    buses traveling routes in the southeastern
    section of Mexico as far north as Mexico City. I
    do not recommend buying bus tickets online.
