    Walking is not very common here, I´ve heard. Most people, indeed, seem to travel by bus or taxi, which I didn´t expect, but is, nonetheless, the case. Cars, buses, trucks and motorcycles drive fast and seemingly recklessly, so be careful walking and keep your head up. Watch out for the deep potholes in the sidewalk.

    If you do walk, there are sidewalks, which might be full of stuff, or a parked car, or a dog, and there´s the road. When crossing the road, make sure to look both ways (yes, mother) because the cars here will not stop. In fact, I´ve heard, that if they can, they will often speed up to prevent you from crossing the road in front of them. And buses and big trucks are not even as forgiving as cars. So be careful.

    To travel to Monterrey if you come from other country, arrive by Plane.
    But if you come from another part of Mexico, you can arrive by Bus.
    In Monterrey, you can take Taxis, there are a lot. Just make sure they have the counter, and goverment permit.
    The buses are ok, safe, but since Monterrey is very hot, you will not be pleased to use bus.
    There are 2 Subway Lines, named METRO, is a safe and confortable way to transport
