Rio de Janeiro Airport and Transportation

How to get to and from the airport, and getting around the city on public transportation

Rio de Janeiro Airport

From Rio's international airport, you may take the safe bus service to the center of the city, where it makes several stops. However, booking a transfer in advance may be the wisest idea:

Transfers from the Airport

If you don't wish to rely on public transportation and prefer the convenience of a transfer, here are your options:


Getting Around

Once in the city, you'll most likely be staying somewhere between Copacabana, Ipanema, or Leblon, and it's possible to walk along the beachfront through those areas without the need of ever using public transport. However, if you are planning to see the Centro (downtown) or cross over to Niteroi's museum, take the metro or a taxi called by your hotel. To reach Niteroi, take one of the fast, comfortable, and safe ferries.
