Transportation Guides

We’ve turned to our expat editors and others in the Matador travel community to create guides on how to take the bus, the subway, the tram, the bike share, in cities all over the world. Because when it comes to transportation, the best way of getting around a place might not be immediately intuitive or accessible to travelers.

Check below to find out which London bus routes still use the old-style double-deckers, which tram lines are most useful for navigating Amsterdam, where to catch longtail boats in Bangkok, and how to take the bus in Buenos Aires like you know what’s going on.
