TRANSPORTATION

The city is well connected with the rest of the country by a network of highways and roads maintained by INVIAL.

  • Valencia counts with a modern subway system, Metro de Valencia. The first stage is already functioning, covering seven stations from the Southern part of the city to the downtown area. More stations are under construction and more lines are in planning stage.
  • Buses are the main means of mass transportation. There are two bus systems: the traditional system and the VALBUS. The traditional system runs a variety of bus types, operated by several companies on normal streets and avenues:
    • bus; large buses.
    • buseta; medium size buses.
    • microbus or colectivo; vans or minivans.
  • The airport, Arturo Michelena International Airport (VLN), is the nation's third busiest. It is served by all major Venezuelan airlines.
SOCIAL PROGRAM
Because it is such a competitive market, night clubs, bars and restaurants are constantly reinventing themselves and places that are packed one weekend are deserted the next. For that reason it would probably be best to Ask the LEO in each LC.
