Buses in Brazil


Due to its geographical positioning, as well as its status as a popular tourist destination and provider of goods for foreign export, Brazil is a relatively well-connected country.

There are several airports that connect to international destinations in Brazil, and many more that offer domestic flights. As Brazil is such a large country, air travel is often the quickest and easiest way to get from one area of the country to another.

It is possible to travel around Brazil, and even across the national border, by bus, however, the size of the country means that bus travel in Brazil can prove extremely lengthy and time-consuming.

Very few passenger rail services operate in Brazil, however there are metro systems in eight of Brazil’s largest cities.

The Urban Mobility program implemented by the Federal Government of Brazil has seen an improvement and expansion of urban public transport services. The Urban Mobility website has more information and details of public transport expansion programs in each state and city.

Bikes

Getting around by bicycle is not common place in Brazil as roads can be busy and dangerous.

The City of Rio de Janeiro has a sustainable bike sharing system called BikeRio. The project has over 600 bicycles at 60 different stations in the areas of Copacabana, Ipanema, Leblon, Lagoa, Jardim Botanico, Gavia, Botafogo, Urca, Flamengo and Centro. The bright orange bicycles can collected from specific spots around the city and returned to other any designated stations within the designated time period.

Bicycles can be hired for the day or on a monthly basis. The BikeRio website has more information.

Is Brazil really that dangerous? | Yahoo Answers

I've heard from the Lonely Planet Brazil travel guide that cities like Rio De Janeiro and Sao Paulo are crime ridden cities. Based on your experiences (if you have been to Brazil), what can you say about this issue? How do you survive those bad hangovers criminals give you? Any suggestions? Thanks!
