    Macau Travel Information

    Visitors should expect orderly traffic, even though the island is small with winding streets and some 130,000 cars, moving around is fairly hassle free. TRANSMAC and TCM are the two bus companies operating all public buses and mini buses in the city. Bus lines cover almost all the attractions and hotels on the Macau Peninsular and the main tourist spots on the outlying islands of Taipa and Coloane.

    A plentiful supply of taxis at the airport and ferry terminals together with an excellent public bus service helps keep the island accessible and in orderly function. Currently there are some 700 taxis in Macau.

On Foot

Macau Peninsula is small but it contains a lot of sites worth seeing. Taking a stroll along the main street in the Peninsula is an eco-friendly way for tourists to get around as well as enjoy the fresh ocean air. Exploring the area on foot is possibly quicker than taking a bus or a taxi due to the numerous roads that are one-way and vehicles have to take detours in order to head in the right direction.

By Bus

Buses are the main transportation for local and travellers in Macau. Transportes Urbanos Macau (Transmac) and Sociedade de Transportes Colectivos de Macau (TCM) are the two main bus companies offering public transportation between Peninsula, Taipa, and Coloane. Each route number dictates the destination that the bus is headed to.

The fare is displayed next to the fare box and it depends on which bus stop you board the bus and it is not determined by the length of the trip. Major casinos and hotels offer free shuttle serviced buses to and from Macau Ferry Terminal, Airport, and other destinations.

By Taxi

Before jumping in a taxi, write down your destination in Cantonese or have a map ready as most of the taxi drivers speak little English. Although there is an additional surcharge for a ride from Macau International Airport as well as surcharge for each luggage, taxis in Macau are inexpensive. Many taxi drivers are off-duty on Sundays, though the red sign at the front window of the cab announces the availability.
