Bus (Cartagena) — Multi-colored buses also traverse through the city at high speed competing for business and are a fun way to see how the locals get from A to B. Most fares are set at around COL$1,200 (US$0.66). The principal landmarks on route are written on boards displayed on the front window (although they don’t always take the route you would expect).
In addition, Cartagena’s efforts to modernize its bus system has resulted in the creation of “Transcaribe” — large blue buses operate the main routes and are complemented by new green buses (alimentadores) that now run throughout the rest of the city. You need to get a card and charge it first. You can buy one card and use it for several people. Each trip costs COL$1,600.
