Public transportation

Rio de Janeiro’s public transport system comprises bus lines, subways, trains and ferryboats. Municipal bus tickets cost R$ 3.40, subway tickets cost R$ 4.30, train tickets cost R$ 4.20, and ferryboat tickets cost R$5.90.

The city has a reduced fare system called Bilhete Único Carioca (that can be roughly translated to Carioca’s Single Card), also known as RioCard. Using Bilhete Único Carioca’s electronic card (RioCard) one can take up to two city buses, within 2 hours, paying a single ticket for both. Bilhete Único Carioca (RioCard) can be used in city buses, ferryboats, trains, subways and official vans. To acquire a Bilhete Único Carioca (RioCard), look for a RioCard store or go to an Itaú bank agency.

TIPS: Buses are the easiest and least expensive way to get around Rio. Keep in mind that they are harder to find at night as many of the bus routes shut down.

Warning: When taking public buses, be sure to stay alert. It is best to remove money from your wallet prior to boarding the bus so pickpockets cannot see where you keep it.

The main bus lines that pass through Cidade Universitária campus are:

From/to Ipanema/Copacabana/South Zone/Downtown

485 – Penha/Praça General Osório (Ipanema)

This bus line passes through the same bus stations on the way to and from Cidade Unviersitária, covering different routes. It is worthy finding out about its route prior to boarding.

From/to North Zone

634 – Saens Peña/Freguesia – via Cidade Universitária

913/616 – Del Castilho (Metrô)/Cidade Universitária
