 - Considering Subway B Line has new schedules (6 to 14 on Saturdays), I'd recommend the following routes in case you're planning to show up a bit late:
      FromTerminal de Ómnibus de Retiro To Universidad Tecnológica Nacional (UTN)
       Bus 106 - Estimated Trip Time 31'

         Walk from intersection of LAVALLE and MEDRANO AV. until reach your destination.
      If you don't have SUBE card, trip needs to be paid with coins and it's more expensive.
