PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION: BUS AND PANAMA METRO

 

Metro Bus

Regular buses to travel through different parts of the city can be taken from different bus stops found on main avenues and alternate roads. Bus fare is paid with an official card which you can get at the Albrook Transport Terminal, or at some metro stations for a cost of $2 dollars. Each metrobus trip costs $0.25. When taking a metrobus using the north or south high-speed roads, it will have a cost of $0.75.
 
 
 

TRANSPORTATION FROM THE AIRPORT

Upon arriving at Tocumen International Airport, pilgrims that have hired buses to take them to their designated parish must walk to the designated area of the parking lot of the new terminal. Pilgrims must provide the contact information of their transportation service to the receiving parish so that the Local Organizing Committee can grant them access to the right area of the airport.
Pilgrims who have not hired transportation will be able to take buses that will take them to the Corredor Sur station Panama Metro line 2. Pilgrims should acquire the card to use the Metro at the airport which will allow them to be taken from Corredor Sur station to the closest station to their accommodation center or parish. It is convenient to consult the Public System’s service hours according to the day of the trip.
 
 

Panama Metro
