They are called Collectivos, and yes they're very safe. All the locals travel by them and they are cheap and air conditioned. The taxis will charge you an arm & a leg. We were there in December 04, and went everywhere by collectivo. It's only 20-30 pesos ($3-4) each way. You just get on, tell the driver where you're going, and pay when you get there. They sometimes get crowded, as they'll try to fit as many passengers on as possible, but they come by every 15 minutes or so.
