Arbus coach service out of business

Arbus, one of the two coach services linking Buenos Aires to EZE airport, went out of business. The government, which owned Arbus through Intercargo, decided to close it due to heavy losses.

Manuel Tienda León is now the only coach service between Buenos Aires and EZE.

I wonder if MTL will increase frequency due to this. Most of the time when I departed EZE on MTL the buses were half empty, did this other service have a strong following (I was unaware).

thanks and safe travels.

That's good news. Hopefully AR and all the other state owned companies will be next if they don't get their act together.

My fault. I never used them. I would have added tens upon tens of dollars each year to their coffers.

Argentina once was a beautiful coutry, pride od beiing organized in European style..
Now it is only beautiful (somehow less, due to negligence in many areas, well.... nobody cares that much...)
EZE - 30 km from the city - the only transfer: taxis $ 40 or bus $20
LHR - 30 km from the city- metro GBP 3.10 ( after 9.30am)
CDG - 40 km from the city - RER (fast metro)- Euro 10
