The Mariano Moreno Bus Station was designed by architects Chanourdie and Micheletti. It was built by the L. Falcone Construction Company. It was originally the Provincial Railway Station of Santa Fe. The foundation stone was laid on December 1, 1927. At this time, the building represented a milestone for the city not only architecturally but historically in reference to the Rosario urban area and the sub and intercity service. It is located just 30 blocks from the center of the city opposite the Patio de la Madera resort. This bus station provides daily services to some of the country's provincial capitals and major cities. Also, it has has daily departures to neighboring countries and combinations to Peru. The highest frequency of travel, with departures every 30 minutes, is recorded in the Rosario-Buenos Aires route whose length is 4 hours. The bust of Dr. Mariano Moreno was created in 1957 by the sculptor Erminio Blotta (1892-1976), and is located in the octagon of the Bus Terminal in Rosario. The Information Office is open 24 hours a day. It provides countless services such as health, WiFi access, medical assistance, bank, taxis, private security, public telephones, local shops of all kinds, parking, luggage storage service, and more...

The surrounding streets are Cafferata to the east, Santa Fe to the north, Castellanos to the west, and Córdoba to the south.
After a 13-hour journey, I finally got to Posadas at 7 am, where I was due to meet my brother, who lives in the city but had gone back to Buenos Aires, and was due to arrive two hours later. So I found myself here, looking for ways to kill time. The station, equipped with modern infrastructure and much better than the old Mitre y Uruguay Bus Station, was inaugurated on July 17, 1998, and currently has a daily turnover of over 650-700 buses. That number increases dramatically during Christmas, New Year and Easter.
The ground floor and first floor hold ticket offices, machines, tourist iinformation, shops, cafes, bars and restaurants, newsstands, cigarettes and sweets shops, toilets, a phone centre, taxi stops, national and international buses ... On the second floor is the waiting room, administration, and information office. As I was tired and wanted to have breakfast as dinner had been extremely frugal at 9 pm, I went to Local 27 Bar and Cafe for breakfast.
