Airport transfer
 

By Coach

Trips on coaches such as Manuel Tienda León from Ezeiza International Airport to Retiro cost 110 pesos. The coaches leave every half hour--less frequently during evenings. From their terminal in Retiro (corner of San Martin and Av. Madero) you will be at 200m from Retiro metro station. To the conference venue, take metro line C and get off at Diagonal Norte Station. There, you transfer to line D (the station is called 9 de Julio) and get off at Facultad de Medicina station. The Faculty of Economic Sciences is right there, at the exit of the metro station.

If you do not want to take the metro from Retiro, a smaller van will deliver you to any downtown address. In the booth of Manuel Tienda León at Ezeiza you must ask for "bus with distribution" and indicate the adress you want to go. It costs 120 pesos or 145 pesos depending on the distance.

Manuel Tienda León also offers transfers between Ezeiza International Airport and Aeroparque Jorge Newbery Airport, wich cost 120 pesos.

Tickets can be purchased from their booth just outside of customs. If you miss it in customs, then walk outside. Keep walking for about 200 meters heading towards Terminal B, turn left, go to Terminal B departures, and there's an outside booth there.

By Remis or Taxi

Prepaid taxis (remises) from Ezeiza International Airport to downtown cost around 270 pesos plus additional costs (mainly tolls). As you exit customs there are booths on either side of the receiving area of the airport. Some of the prepaid remises will provide you with a 20% discount coupon for your airport return. If you manage to hold on to this coupon, dial them directly to come and collect you and save yourself 20%. You must also present the original receipt to get the discount. There are other established companies such as Manuel Tienda León (410 pesos), Go Airport Taxi Buenos Aires (60 USD) and Taxi Ezeiza (270 pesos) which allow for a pre-reservation online in order to guarantee your car/driver prior to your arrival which may be essential in the morning hours when the bulk of the long-haul flights arrive to the airport.

Hailing a curbside taxi is not recommended, but if one does, one should select a taxi that is dropping someone off. It will cost approximately 30% less than a remis. The cab driver will tell you a fixed price beforehand, if not, you should negotiate the price before leaving the pickup area.

By Public Bus

The cheapest way to get downtown is to take the number 8 bus (ex 86). The stop is just outside terminal B arrivals, and you need to walk 100 m. The bus will take almost 2 hours to get to Plaza de Mayo, going straight on Rivadavia Avenue and then on Hipólito Yrigoyen street. It will cost 9 pesos to get downtown. Be ready to have coins for the bus: you can get change at the counters where the airport tax is paid or at any airport shop. Bus from the airport is not advised for someone unfamiliar with the city.
