There’s no metro in Bogota, but the bus rapid transit system, TransMilenio, covers several routes along main roads. It’s the fastest way to escape heavy traffic.
Try to avoid it during rush hour though, as it gets extremely crowded. And always watch your stuff and beware of thieves.
SITP and TransMilenio are the cheapest options to get around. Buy a Tullave card if you plan to use both systems and download the Moovit and TransmiSitp apps for costs, stops, and routes.
Make sure you top up your card in advance for SITP.
Taxis in Bogota are not very expensive. For safety reasons, don't hail a taxi on the street – use apps or call (or have the restaurant, hotel, club call) to order taxis.
This is one of the best and safest ways to get around, although it still faces legal regulation challenges.
Take UberX or UberPOOL for cheaper options, UberBLACK for a premium service, or UberVAN if you're part of a large group.
Beyond the hills of the huge, fast-paced city of Bogotá awaits several adventures that’ll bring you much closer to the culture and rolling hills of the Andean countryside.
Colombia offers everything from cheesy tourist trap accommodations to high-class personalized splendor galore. Wherever you go, there are abundant options for places to stay. Except for the places that are still off the beaten path.
