transportation from Montevideo to Colonia

We want to get to Colonia from Montevideo. We were told that a taxi costs about $250. We would prefer not to take a bus which is 3 hours. Are there any other services that are priced more reasonably? thanks

I know a Remise from Colonia with a cost of U$S 160 for that trip.(call 094383832) It takes exactly 2 hours from door to door.

But if you take the non-stop bus (directo) it may take less than 2 1/2 hours

There's no train, no plane. Your options are taxi (a remise is a taxi or other car booked in advance), bus, or rent a car. Renting a car would be cheaper than a taxi or remise. The buses are very good, comfortable, very inexpensive, and only take 1/2 hour to 45 minutes more than a taxi/remise/private car. They leave about every 1/2 hour.

We took the bus. It was very easy, comfortable and affordable.
