Getting Around Mexico City
There are a variety of options for traveling around Mexico City, and
passengers who land at MEX can book private transportation and tourist
buses ahead of time, find a taxi, or take the Metrobus, which offers cheap
fares and a number of routes.
You will likely see a number of red double-decker Turibuses after arriving
in Mexico City, which may remind you of the iconic double deckers in
London. These tourist buses are a popular option among sightseers, but just

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:
- Yellow Cab Aeropuerto
- Porto Taxi
- Sitio 300
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.
