Bariloche has an excellent local public bus system. You can pick up a complete bus timetable at the Tourist Info Centre at the Centro Civico in the heart of the city. There are two bus companies, but the only one you will use as a tourist is the '3 de Mayo' company with the red/orange buses.

Cash is no longer accepted on the buses except for the bus to Cerro Catedral which is about AR$15 one way and the Airport bus about AR$8.00 one way.
You can actually move around to every corner of the city an even get quite far from it. You may take a bus all the way to the Llao-Llao Hotel and Pañuelo Port (Nº 20), to Colonia Suiza (Nº 10), to Villa Los Coihues and Lake Gutierrez (Nº 50), to the base of Catedral, the skiing resort (bus named Catedral), or to the airport (Nº 72).

Bariloche is 1568km far from Buenos Aires. If you  take a bus, it might take you around 20 to 22 hours travelling. On the other hand, if you fly over from B.A to Bariloche, it will just take you 2 hours.
Make sure to check how much time you've got to travel before choosing your transportation by the price. Bus services are excellent. All of them include dinner onboard and some even offer full flat bed seats.
However, prices between economy class flights and the most expensive bus service are not too different.
