Unhealthy. The buses are huge contributors to the high pollution. - Sep 2009

Moderately unhealthy. - Dec 2008

Unhealthy, lots of exhaust and diesel pollution for buses and trucks. It just hangs in the air. - Dec 2008

VERY, VERY UNHEALTHY!!!!!! And not too many people are talking about it. With the high altitude, the air being so thin, and so much smog, you are constantly struggling to get some air into your lungs. - Nov 2008

Unhealthy - especially from bus/truck exhaust. - Nov 2008

Moderate, like any big city. I'm a New Yorker so it's really all relative :) - May 2008

Moderate. Bogota is at high altitude, so the air is much thinner. - Apr 2008
