Colectivos are shared vans (combis) operated by the taxi union that run along fixed routes with fixed stops. Prices are by the ride, not by the stop or distance. Non-scheduled stops are not allowed. Routes are marked on the van’s windshields.
All 7 routes begin and end at Chedraui Plaza. They begin running at 6 AM and the last run is at 8 PM, daily, but Sundays the service may be a little delayed, as the supervisors have Sundays off. No animals, smoking, or consumption of alcohol allowed aboard. Cost is 8 pesos adults, 4 pesos children under 3 years old or students and seniors with ID. Supervisors are on hand Mon-Sat at stops at Chedraui, Av. 35 x Av. 65, and Juarez x Av. 90. There is always an English-speaking supervisor at Chedraui. The main office is on Av. 5 between Av. Xelha and Av. 13.
