Route and Stops
The Mexico city tourist bus takes two different routes, with 30 stops found near the main tourist attractions in the city. The Centro-Polanco circuit passes through the historic centre and the Reforma-Santa Fe circuit takes you close to the major shopping and business areas of the city. And during the journey, you'll enjoy recorded commentary in English about the places the tour passes.
Some of the most interesting stops include the Monument to Independence, the Angel of Independence, the Chapultepec Museums and the National Auditorium.

How it Works
The first time you get on one of the buses you should change your tickets for a bracelet which you must present every time you want to use the service. The ticket is valid for 24 hours from its first use, that is to say, if it is used at 3 pm on Monday, it will be valid until 2:19 pm on Tuesday.
During this time you can get on and off the buses as many times as you like to get to know the most emblematic spots in Mexico City.
