The Mexico city tourist bus has four different routes, with stops in the main tourist attractions in the city.

Polanco Route: takes you to the most fashionable parts of Mexico City - such as the Auditorium, Avenida Campos Elíseos, Antara Mall, and the Papalote Museum.

Before reserving you can consult the stops and routes on the Mexico City tourist bus.
How it Works
The first time you take one of the buses, you can do so at any one of the stops throughout the city. Here you will change your ticket, and the ticket is valid for one day. So if you use it at 3 pm on Monday, it will be valid until 9 pm that same day. During this period you can get on and off the buses as many times as you like. To take full advantage of the ticket, we recommend using it for the first time as early as possible.
A complete route takes about three hours.
Schedule and Frequency
All of the Mexico City tourist buses operate from Monday to Sunday, from 9 am to 9 pm, with a frequency of between 20 and 45 minutes.
- If you take the bus on a Sunday, some of the routes will be modified with the closure of some roads, thanks to the Ciclotón bike ride.
