Leaving the airport
On leaving the airport we suggest that you take a taxi. The yellow cabs are less expensive than the special red or blue ones, as these have special booths located inside the airport facilities. The current fares are around R$ 50,00 to R$ 60,00, for a trip of about 30 minutes. There are also air-conditioned buses leaving from the blue sector, terminal 1 and 2, running from the airport to the Novo Rio Bus Station, Copacabana, Ipanema and Leblon.

Buses and Cabs
There are two bus lines running near the Institute: line 409 (Tijuca - Jardim Botânico), line 125 (Central - Jardim Botânico). Pay as you enter, using the front door to get on and the rear door to get off the bus. The current bus fare is R$ 1,60 or 1,70 and the maximum change given is for a R$ 10,00 bill.
