Bogota Airport Public Bus Recommendations

IHateTaxis.com has a mixed recommendation on the Bogota Airport public bus.

The TransMilenio is a convenient option, if you are going to a central location.The Buseta is "ok" but be cautious not to travel to areas of unrest - and take these buses only during the day. For both, do not carry large amounts of cash with you as robberies are known to occur along some routes.

There are two Bogota Airport bus options: the TransMilenio or the Busetas (regular bus).


The TransMilenio is Bogot√°'s bus rapid transit (BRT) system:

  • The TransMilenio was recentlynextended to El Dorado Avenue, making it possible to use it to get to/from the airport
  • First, you need to take a free shuttle bus to the Transmilenio "Portal El Dorado" station
  • Look for the "Alimentador" (feeder) stops in front of the main terminal (or the Puente A√©re, if flying with Avianca) - the bus is green with "TransMilenio" written on the side
  • Take the bus to the Portal El Dorado station
  • Before you enter the station, you need to buy a Tullave card (keep your passport handy as you need ID - and there is a form to fill in, even if you only need one trip)
  • If you need help, look for the people with Transmilenio or blue SITP jackets (they are happy to help, but generally don't speak English - study your phrasebook
  • There are more than 400 green feeder buses¬†that transport riders from certain important stations to many different locations that the main route does not reach (all free) - you may find there is one headed where you are going when you get off the TransMilenio
  • Tip: You need to be travelling light - they won't let you on if you have large suitcases
  • TransMilenio Map    


The Busetas "regular" bus system:

  • Just outside the terminal's main entrance, you will find a "paradero" (bus stop) with frecuent busetas passing by.
  • Buses are marked Aeropuerto and pass by frequently
  • Buses run between 06:00 - 20:00
  • Buses only indicate the main places it passes
  • Buses drop you off in the city centre - from there you will likely have to take another bus or a taxi (please read the precautions in the Taxi section    )
  • These buses run to/from the Bogota Airport from Calle 19 or Carrera 10
  • If you are going to La Candelaria, take the "Germania" bus, as it passes through the district (typically heading up Carerra 3)
  • If you need help, the drivers are friendly, although they aren't likely to speak English - study your phrasebook and ask them to indicate you when the bus is passing by the point where you want to get off


Tip: the green TransMilenio feeder buses are free, whereas the regular buses are red (and a fare applies)
