Getting Around

Buses (colectivos) run all over Rosario. Most leave from Plaza Sarmiento, between Corrientes and Entre Ríos. ETR (Ente del Transporte de Rosario; Tel: 0800-444-0308, URL: www.etr.gov.ar) publishes a free guide of routes, with information on how to get to major attractions, like the bus station, train depot and Playa Florida. However, most of the neighborhoods and sights are accessible on foot. Getting to the bus station and to Playa Florida where you can find the beaches and clubs are the two main exceptions. For the Playa Florida area, take bus number 153 from Corrientes (0.5 hr). No coin fares are paid. Obtain a tarjeta magnética—which come in one-trip ($0.45), two-trip ($0.90) and six-trips ($2.70) denominations—from kiosks and shops.

Over a dozen remis and another dozen taxi companies serve Rosario. From the bus terminal to downtown costs about $4.25, and the train station to downtown $3-4. Taxis charge $1 drop-flag fee and $0.05 per 100 meters. Prices are higher Friday and Saturday nights, Sundays and holidays. Make sure they turn on the meter. Remisses are more expensive.

Bi-Maq has a wide selection of bicycle parts and does repairs (Zeballos and San Martín, Tel: 440-0710). To rent a bike, go to Dos Ruedas Una Huella (Zeballos 327, Tel: 155-713-812, E-mail: info@bikerosario.com.ar, URL: www.bikerosario.com.ar).

Finding a place to rent a car isn’t hard to do in Rosario. The following international companies also have offices at the airport: Hertz (Mitre 747, Tel: 426-3400; airport Tel: 451-3220 / 155-045-831), Budget (Mendoza 1547, Tel: 4494500; airport Tel: 452-1759 / 156-446-384) and Avis (Mendoza 3167, Tel: 435.-2299; airport Tel: 155-326-268).
