Bus Travel Mexico,
List Of First Class Bus Lines and Bus Service

"Premier First Class", "Semi-Directo", or "Local", the  Mexico bus system can be confusing.  
Premier First Class Directo is the best ride but you can combine these systems with the public bus systems in the cities and with the collective taxis, combis, and  camionettas to get anywhere  you want in Mexico.

Second Class Bus, This is the second class bus and will most often leave from a different terminal than the First Class, usually in the older section of downtown perhaps near an old train station.  (Passenger trains no longer operate in Mexico except Copper Canyon)  

Second class service breaks down further into:

  • Directo:
Directo is supposed to make few stops in a station to station fashion but seldom does, although it does not stop at every way station through the mountains or along the coast.
Semi-Directo Makes more frequent but limited stops

  • Ordinario
Ordinario is a local bus although it may travel for fifty to a hundred miles. It is very inexpensive but will make frequent stops.

Segunda Clase Bus Lines: Estrella Blanca is one of the lines covering the coastal area with first class buses that might leave from a second class terminal Other second class service. Flecha Amarilla,  (Except Primera Plus)

Breakdown Of Bus Fares:
This example is for a trip form Oaxaca City in Oaxaca State to San Cristobal de Las Casa in Chiapas State, a distance of 380 Miles approximately

ADO Platino Bus   $622  Pesos

ADO   GL  $466 Pesos (Grand Lujo)

OCC  $338 Pesos

Mexico Bus to Beaches
Pacific Coast
Many small second class lines serve the villages from the second class terminal.  Mexico is mountainous country to the extreme and often a bus will make one trip in to the village and then park for the night to return to the city the following day.
