LatAm substitute for coger

Doesn't coger mean the f swear word? What can I use in Latin America to say coger without getting laughed at/smacked in the face?

Hola Nevaeh

The equivalent in Latin America is generally "tomar"; for example:

Yo tomo el autobús todos los días.

I take the bus everyday.

Luis toma sus libros para estudiar.

Luis takes his books to study.
