You can also use [http://andestransit.com/ AndesTransit], [http://www.clickbus.com/ ClickBus] or [https://www.redbus.co/ciudad/bogota-pasajes-de-bus redBus] to compare prices and departure hours between most colombian bus companies.
  
 
Besides the main central terminal station, Bogotá also has a far south terminal.  The area is way off the tourist path, but it is easily accessible via the Transmilenio G line.  If you want to use this terminal, alight at the South Portal and change to a 'Terminal' feeder for free.  The green bus will drop you off at the entrance of the terminal, which is generally cleaner and less busy than the North Terminal.  It also has signs in English everywhere and since many buses coming from the North Terminal stop here anyway, you might want to use it.  Do not venture outside the terminal though, there is nothing to see and the area is poor and potentially dangerous for foreigners (and locals).

Transmilenio, Bogota's rapid bus service is generally affordable, clean and efficient. It carries commuters to numerous corners of the city in exclusive lanes ("troncales[http://transmilenio.gov.co/es/servicios-troncales]"), bypassing the infamous city traffic; however, there are some main routes that are not yet reached by Transmilenio. Tickets cost COP2,000 (about USD0.90) in Trasmilenio or COP1,700 (buses). You can buy your ticket(s) at the counter at all stations. Check in: [http://www.sitp.gov.co/Publicaciones/planifica_tu_viaje_en_el_sitp_con_moovit Moovit].

Buses in exclusive lanes all have bus numbers that start with a letter.  The letter is an indicator of where each route line terminates.  Each of the bus routes in the exclusive lanes has a sister bus route that travels in the opposite direction with a different bus route number.  Signs at each bus station show the list of sister routes and all of the stops along the way where the buses will be stopping. Buses do not stop at all stops between the terminuses.
