Public Transport

As a tourist, you are most likely to catch one of the Transmilenio busses along Avenida Caracas or Carrera 7 (referred to as "la septima" — the seventh). The busses run often and are relatively safe. Watch out for pickpockets, though. You can pay for your trip only with a Tullave public transit card. You can buy them at most stations on Avenida Caracas and recharge them at the same place, as well as in some convenient stores. Cash only, unfortunately. Google Maps is alright for planning your trip, but Moovit app works better in Bogota. Keep in mind that a lot of busses follow express routes and don't stop rarely. Screens on the bus will indicate indicate two stops: the next one and the one after. The letter K stands for Carrera and C stands for Calle.
