From the airport

Buenos Aires is served by two airports. The main international airport is Ministro Pistarini Airport, also known as Ezeiza, located about 30 km from Buenos Aires. Many flights to and from neighboring countries use the smaller Aeroparque Jorge Newbery airport, a short distance from downtown.

From Ezeiza
By taxi: as you exit customs you will find several booths offering taxi services, where you can prepay your trip.
Manuel Tienda León is a well established company also providing coach services. Another good option is Taxi Ezeiza . You will find their desk further out, in the main arrival area of the airport. Hailing a curbside taxi is not recommended.
By coach: Arbus and Manuel Tienda Leon.
From Aeroparque
By taxi: You can prepay your trip at the desk of one of the taxi agencies at the arrival area of the airport, such as Remis Transfer Express, Remis Trans Air or Manuel Tienda León. There are also taxi stops (with usually a long line) just outside the airport international and domestic exits.
Hailing a curbside taxi on the street is not recommended.
By coach: Manuel Tienda León offers bus trips to their at Av. Eduardo Madero 1299. The coaches leave every half hour, less frequently during evenings.
Getting to the conference from the Urbanica Hotel

To go to the Conference site (Ciudad Universitaria, Pabellon I) you have three choices:
  1. Walk. The walk is highlighted on the main page of the conference. The only precaution is that you need to cross a railway - and that area may be a little bit lonely. The walk takes about 20-30 minutes (depending on the speed).
  2. Take a cab. That should not be more expensive than ARS 60.- (from the Hotel to the campus ) or ARS 100.- (from Campus to the Hotel) and there can be 3-4 people in each cab.
  3. Take a Bus. 1 block from the Urbanica stops the 42.- that takes you to Campus - you may have to wait a bit - the ride takes only about 5' but with wait, we would calculate 30'.
Getting around in Buenos Aires

To get around while in the city, a good reference is The subway network (subte) reaches most touristic attractions, and several bus lines (colectivos) go all over the city. You can plan your route here. Bus and subway rides cost less than AR$5. To use buses and metro, you need to buy an electronic ticketing card called SUBE and add some credit to it. See the map of selling locations. The card costs less than AR$30.

Buenos Aires is a big city, so it is good to take some precautions. Drivers may be very agressive, so be careful when crossing the street. It is usually safe to walk in touristic areas in the evening though you do not want to show up appealing electronic devices. There could be some pickpockets so it is good not to leave your belongings unattended in restaurants and bars, and -especially in buses- always keep your bagpack and purse in front of you, and your money in your front pocket.  The usual precautions when traveling need to be applied here too.

Buses to reach Campus UBA -Ciudad Universitaria-: Numbers  33,28,42,45,107,37,160. Warning: The destination sign on the bus should indicate "Ciudad Universitaria"
