Buses to many important cities in Bolivia
Most buses go from the bus terminal which is on the way to the railway station.
Bus transport in Bolivia is cheap but do not expect as nice buses as in Chile or Argentina.
I can not say whether there are still trains operating from Potosí.
In the bus terminal beware of pickpockets!

Blue bus to Potosi
There are two ways to get to Potosi, the first one is by bus. And the second one is getting by airplane. I really recommend the first one, because is cheaper and you`ll be able to see the countryside.
There are so many buses to get there. Also from anywhere. from La Paz it takes around ten hours. from Oruro six hours. And the departures are frecuently.

Another picture from the highway between Sucre to Potosí: the bridge over river Pilcomayo.
We took a van with driver in Sucre; it is better to be an expert to drive along this highway.
