To get from new Quito Airport into Quito: Stop reading if you have more than two bags. For lighter travelers, “just say no” to that big fancy bus that charges $12 dollars to take you to the old airport only to then find your only option to get the rest of the way into Quito is a taxi for $5 extra. Instead, walk 10 steps past that bus to the second island to get on the Kermit-the-frog-green colored “Tumbaco” bus. You’ll be given a ticket to Rio Coca for $2, the northernmost station of the Ecovia, where then for only 25 cents you can board all the freshly emptied ecovias heading straight downtown. What’s also nice about the Tumbaco bus is that it’s faster (50 minutes vs. 70 minutes) and they keep all the luggage right on the bus behind the driver with the cobrador watching it like a hawk instead of in cargo bays.
