Bus stop with a thatched roof, Yucatan, Mexico – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingCompared to almost any place in North America, Mexican inter-city bus service is far superior. You can travel from almost anywhere in Mexico to just about every possible destination.
 
First class (and better) service on Federal highways; second class between smaller cities; and combis (colectivos) to smaller pueblos-- all reasonably priced.

ADO Platino, Mexico – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingFirst, I would point out, the photo in the post of KW is a city bus, not a colectivo. 
 
I also like the ADO buses and use them often. On the longer distance trips, I use ADO Platino which has almost fully reclining seat with leg rest, like a recliner at home. Also two bathrooms, a personal seat back entertainment screen with a wide choice of music and videos plus a coffee bar in back.
 
It should also be noted that retirees of a certain age residing in Mexico are entitled to a senior discount INAPAM card, giving 50 percent discount on the buses.

Colectivo, Mexico – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingThere is a good service in Mexico.
 
One of my favorite bus companies is ADO and I believe it goes all over Mexico. They have air-conditioned buses with TVs and are like charter buses in a way. Taking the bus in Mexico is really an affordable way to get around and to go on trips to different cities or towns in the region if you don’t want to drive or fly, for example.  When I go to Playa Del Carmen I take an ADO bus from the airport in Cancun. I think it’s only $4 and it’s a really comfortable, fast way to get around.
 
I personally don’t use local buses that much but everybody tends to use like Colectivo taxis, which are kind of like a bus because you can get on and off. It’s a van or basically like a big car or truck.  It will go around picking people up and dropping them off. You might be sharing a van with other people so it’s kind of like a bus. That would be the most common form of transportation in most of the cities where I am. There are also regular buses, but I don’t use them as much because the taxis and Colectivo are so cheap and easy to use and very accessible. And then for longer range trips I use one of the charter bus companies.
