Salvador Da Bahia Transport


City buses are frequent in Salvador, but the system can be confusing. Air-conditioned minibuses cost about twice the normal fares, and most major tourist destinations and shopping areas have their own stops. Generally running between 6am and 11pm, buses are boarded from the back and disembarked from at the front.

Driving on the narrow streets of Salvador's old city centre can be stressful and confusing. Cars are only recommended for travellers intending to explore outside the city. Taxis are a better option, but passengers should negotiate a price before the journey commences if the taxi isn't metered.
