During vacation time, teachers can get discounts on long distance bus tickets (e.g. ADO) and some museums if they show a valid I.D. card from their school.

If your I.D. card has expired, you can sometimes show your last pay stub (current) to show that you still are working as a teacher.

Also, I get a 10% discount on books from the local bookstore because of my teacher status.

p.s. I'm not sure which Mexico forum to use. The other forum has a thread about discounts for 65+ , but there are discounts for all teachers as mentioned above.

Some bus companies only have a certain number of seats available for teachers so if it's a full bus, sometimes you won't be able to get the discount - book early!

This is also true if you want a senior citizen discount. Each departure has a limited number of seats reserved for those "de la tercera edad".

Some buslines only offer the discounted teacher seats during holidays or holiday periods as well. No discount if you beg off a Friday and hit the beach Thursday eve.
