Getting Around Cuenca

Most of Cuenca's attractions are reachable by foot, especially if you are staying in the historical center. However, Cuenca also has a good, reliable local bus system which can take you around. Buses generally run from 6:30 a.m.-10 p.m. during the week, and buses pass each bus stop on their route every 15 minutes or so. Actual bus stops are labeled with blue signs that say "parada de bus." Each ride costs $0.25 and you must have exact change. You can also purchase a refillable bus pass at any store with an "Urbania" sign; it costs $1.70, then you can charge it with as much money as you'd like.

The website has maps of all the bus routes, but you can also ask bus drivers if they pass where you are going when they stop at the bus stop. Several local buses go to the bus station, including bus #11, #18 (also goes to airport), #26 and #28; just look for an bus that says "T. Terrestre." Taxis between the bus terminal and downtown (historical center) cost $2.
