Transit time in a bus = 2.5 hours

Transit time in a bus= 5.5 hours

Hmmm. Turns out it was cheaper to rent a car one way.

How much the ecuadorian government wants their citizens to buy cars and oil: near 0%
How much the american government ...
I hear gas is about $1.50 a gallon. I'm hoping to take my motorcycle when I go so I can have the liberty of travel on my own time. It's going to be an adventure and one to document...
+Enrique Vega Very true. Last I saw it was 1.46 a gallon. The government subsides the cost of both gasoline and natural gas. We were paying just 2.25 for a large tank to heat our stove.
I'm from that third world country and I always tried to stay away from any of these buses. Very irresponsible drivers. Almost every week you read about accidents caused by them.
