Transportation in Montevideo
Montevideo is a reasonably safe city and very suitable for walking short distances. Walking is the most recommendable and enjoyable option, especially if the road is an excuse to walk along the rambla or through the city's parks. Walking routes can be planned with Cómo ir , Google Maps and Moovit .
Only main streets and avenues have ramps on corners, and it is common to find breaks or obstacles on sidewalks.
It is available on a map that contains the existing infrastructure for bicycle circulation in the city and public bicycle lanes. The network of bicycle paths does not cover all routes, and where they do not exist, circulation is on the street. A highly recommended route is the 25 kilometers of the Rambla, which runs through the coastal neighborhoods.
