Public Transportation

The Mazatlan bus system is a good way to get around if you’re on a budget and don’t mind taking extra time to get around the city. The green colored buses all go up and down the Golden Zone Ave and stop at all of the marked bus stops. The buses run from 5:00 am to 10:00 pm. You will generally be charged around 4.00 to 4.50 pesos for your fare, but will never be charged more then 7.50 pesos.
