Then do not go to the closest exit to the highway - [[Xsuzann]] has been caught over there by police and sent away. Cross the railway and head to the road which seems to be a road going to the country - but its actually an exit for highway. You would have to walk about 2 km, but it's worth that, as the cars don't go that fast on the exit and it's very likely that someone will take you!
=== North to [[
Zarate]], Cordoba, Jujuy ([[ruta 14]]) ===
This option is for those looking to get to Iguazu. From the main train station Retiro take Linea Suarez. There is a train every 15 minutes on week days, slightly less regularly on week-ends. In Villa Ballester change to the one going to Zarate (you should buy a ticket for this one). You can get off in Campana. Buses to Campana peaje pass on the street in front of Campana railway station. They go around the park and turn right at the corner of it.
This is a long way to get to the hitching point. The train is slow and you have to wait for connection in Villa Ballester. As the train from Villa Ballester to Zarate only runs a few times a day it is not advisable to use this option without checking the timetable of this connecting train first. A more direct way is to take a bus to Zarate,
one that takes the freeway. There should be buses from Plaza Italia ( on Santa Fe, the northern side of Plaza Italia), but this information needs revision.
Other possibility : From the city center of Buenos Aires, take the bus 60 and go out at the terminus in Escobar. It takes around 3 hours but it costs only 5 pesos ! In Escobar, you should go to HIPERMERCADO JUMBO, on the street called Ramal Escobar. Then you will see the shild with the direction of Campana and Zarate. You can start hitchiking. (Le monde sur le pouce, october 2013). You can also use any other local bus that goes to the bus terminal of Escobar and walk a few blocks to the on ramp of the highway from the terminal in Escobar (if in doubt ask people for directions once you get off the bus). From the on ramp of the highway it is quite easy to hitch, there is sufficient traffic and people drive slowly.
