Cozumel Transportation - Taxi Colectivos Service
One of Cozumel's best kept transportation secrets is theColecitvo Van system. These "joint collective taxis" are small vans that run various routes throughout Cozumel similar to the City's big public buses.

The Taxi Colectivo Vans are from City buses in two ways ~

1. The Colectivos are vans
2. The Colectivos are operated by members of taxi union

Back in "the day" when Cozumel did not have a reliable public BUS system, the local taxi union worked with the City to develop these inexpensive taxi van routes. Notice the white van color with red striping indicates the vans are all part of the taxi union.

The Taxi Colectivo Vans are from regular taxis in three ways ~

1. The Colectivos are ride vans ~ other people will be picked up / dropped along the route
2. are fixed for the entire route ~ riders should check as they board the taxis
3. The van are pre-determined along the routes in other words riders cannot request to be dropped anywhere other than the designated stops themselves. Most of the routes are on major streets. Depending on your destination you will want to choose the route that will stop closest to the location you wish to go.

This is a good, safe and inexpensive means of getting around the city.

As with the public buses now, there are many, many routes but Insider provides below a few of the more essential routes that might be helpful to visitors. Again, check the windshield of the vehicle for stops along the route.
