There are a number highways leading from the city, including MG 424 connecting drivers to Matozinhos and the MG 010 which connects to Vaspasiano. The MG 006 leads towards Ribeirao das Neves.
Belo Horizonte has a strategic infrastructure in place for transport. The city has an efficient public bus system which is also a comparatively cheaper option for travelling around the city. One of the disadvantages of this mode of travelling is that passengers hardly have time to absorb the brilliantly color coded routes. A number of metro trains operate in the city center connecting the city with many other important cities. Taxis are easily recognizable as they are typically painted in all white and carry meters.
