Puerto Vallarta Bus Route
There are two main bus companies that service Puerto Vallarta, and their buses can be distinguished by their colors.

If you’re going downtown, this is all you need; all the blue and white CENTRO buses take the same route around downtown. Once you’re leaving downtown, though, you need to look at the bus’s final destination. All CENTRO buses go as far north as Wal-Mart, but after this, their routes vary. The final destination will usually be in large letters either at the top of the bus, or at the top of the windshield.
MARINA or MARINA VALLARTA – These buses continue north past Wal-Mart, and then enter and make a loop through the Marina. These are the only buses that actually enter the Marina; if you’re staying in a hotel in the Marina, you must take one of these buses to get back. MARINA and MARINA VALLARTA buses are a little less frequent than the others – you may have to wait fifteen minutes or so to catch one.
PITILLAL – After leaving downtown, these buses travel north, make a right turn at Wal-Mart on Prisciliano Sánchez Street, and go to Pitillal. Don’t take a Pitillal bus if you’re going anywhere north of Wal-Mart, such as the Marina or the airport.
If you’re not in too much of a hurry, Puerto Vallarta’s public bus system is a cheap and easy way to get around and see the city.
