Infrastructure In Argentina
The Improving Infrastructure In Argentina
Infrastructure in Argentina is good, but some areas and regions are in need of improvements and upgrades.
For the most part, Argentina enjoys reliable internet services. More than two thirds of the population are connected, and mobile internet usage is growing rapidly. Cell communication is also good here. Highway systems crisscross the country, but many are unpaved and in need of renovation.
Argentina has over 6 thousand miles of navegable waterways with various ports, most of the major ones on the Atlantic coast.
Within Buenos Aires, public transit is accessible, convenient, and cheap. While many locals choose to have cars, it is easy enough to get to and from any corner of the city at any hour on public transit. Buenos Aires’ subway system runs from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. (the final hour is dependent on the line) every day of the week.
Buenos Aires also has an efficient bus system that runs 24/7. The buses are called colectivos, and, no matter where you are or where you want to go, you can find at least a couple bus lines that will take you there. There is an online map system that specifies subway, bus, and even bike routes throughout the city.
Argentina is served by over one thousand regional and international airports, however less than 150 of them have paved runways. In Buenos Aires, Ezeiza Ministro Pistarini International Airport (EZE) sees more than 8.5 million passengers per year.
