There is a useful overnight bus between Tucuman and Cordoba which leaves at midnight and arrives at 7.30am in Cordoba.
Overnight buses are very common in Argentina and it's possible (most of the time) to get a good night's sleep as they are generally quite comfortable, especially if you opt for the more expensive cama class. If you're travelling on a budget, taking an overnight bus is a good way to save the price of a night in a hotel.
We travelled with Flecha Bus and it cost about 100 pesos.

The best way for tourists to go around the city is by taxi. Taxis are painted in white and generally have a sign on top and the license number on both sides.
"Remises" are similar to taxis and are a little bit cheaper, but they don't have a distinctive color.

Airport-Downtown: between $10 and $12
Bus Station-Downtown: between $2 and $3

If you are more "adventurous" and want to experience a ride on local buses, there are around 20 lines. Within San Miguel de Tucuman, you need to buy a token (cospel) in kiosks. It costs 1 peso. If you want to go to Yerba Buena (Lines 100, 102 and 118) you have to pay $1,40.
Toursitorico - during the high season (mid June to mid August), there's a bus service which covers the main tourist spots in the city. Check for information at the Tucuman Tourist Office on 24 de Septiembre street, across from Independencia Square.
