Cheapest way to city center Feb 05, 2017
I have been doing a lot of research how to reach the center of Quito in economical way. I know the new airport Mariscal Sucre is far away

I have a few options to get there I know the easiest way is taxi, but this is expensive (25-35$)

While on our way out to the exit I see counters of taxi and bus, I asked information of getting to the center in economical way

She offered me a taxi but I refuse, she told me about the public bus is one of the cheapest way to the center

There is also Express Shuttle I ask her about it, she said it stops in the old town. So if you stay new town Mariscal the express shuttle isn't good

She recommend us to take the public green bus. Outside the terminal building you see the Green Bus standing opposite from the taxis

There was a guy with logged book infront the bus I ask him if the bus goes to the center ( Rio Coca terminal) he said yes. I asked him where to buy a bus ticket, he said inside the bus. We board the bus with our small luggage we're the only tourist. The bus left after we board there are buses every 10-15 minutes

When the bus departs the conductor collect 2 US dollar per person. The bus stops to pick up passengers on the way, so the trip can get longer than taxi

Driver and conductor had no English. Travelling in South America must have a basic Spanish

After an hour we arrive at main bus terminal in Quito ( Rio Coca )

From here, you can choice of taken another bus for 0.25 cents ECOVIA (blue public bus) to your final destination or taxi. We saw it was a bit chaotic outside the terminal (rush hour) we took a taxi to our hotel. A taxi from the bus station to our hotel in Mariscal (new town) cost 6$

Going back to the airport very early in the morning is easy. The first bus depart from Rio Cocca Station at 5:45 am. See the sign infront of the bus Aeropuerto

We have a flight to Galapagos at 9 am we took the first trip. No traffic in morning, the trip takes only 40 minutes
