Public Transportation in Quito Aug 13, 2009
First time in Quito I was impressed by the well organized public transportation of the city. Although the traffic can be bad, the public transportation is good.

Trolley: They don't have a metro but have trolleys called Metrobus and the 3 lines would take you mostly everywhere. It's cheap, they have stops and a special line in the streets, so they won't stopped by the traffic. The only think is that they get crowded often, so you have to be aware of your belongings. There are no fix schedules, but they come and go very often.

Bus: there are different bus lines, but they are well organized, new buses and painted same color. They are cheap and there are no bus stops - like in Lima - they will stop where the passenger asks, hehehe. They have signs saying where they drive

Taxi: they all are yellow and have a taximeter. Just make sure they are using it. If it's late at night or they are going to a far place, you'd have to arrange the fee.

My recommendation is not renting a car in town, just if you are going to the surroundings. Driving around the city can be frustrating and public transportation works good.
