City Bus — Oaxaca City, Oaxaca
Walking is by far the easiest way to get around the dense, historical center of town, as well as some of its adjacent neighborhoods, such as the Colonia Reforma. To reach outlying neighborhoods, relatively inexpensive taxis are easiest and quickest. Nevertheless, local buses, urbanos, go everywhere in the city and are a viable low-cost (Mex$3.50) means of getting around town, although they're slow and the routes can be difficult to navigate.

To return, buses run north along Pino Suárez (Xicoténcatl south of Independencia), four blocks east of the Zocalo, to Niños Heroes De Chapultepec, two blocks west of the bus station, continuing north to the Colonia Reforma.
