Even though colectivos usually look like taxis and have similar markings, they're not taxis, because unlike taxis, which are exclusive, colectivos are shared among several passengers. Colectivos usually follow set routes, departing from designated stands, or sitios, and picking up and dropping off passengers anywhere along the way until they reach their destinations, usually other sitios, similar to second-class ordinario buses, whereas taxis drop passengers off at their doorstep. Furthermore, colectivo fares are low, only a fraction of what taxis charge and a little more than second-class or local buses, although they're usually faster than buses.
