How to get there

How to get to Rio de Janeiro

You can go by bus to Rio de Janeiro from numerous cities from all over Brazil. In Rio you will arrive at the Rodoviária Novo Rio, also known as Terminal Rodoviário do Rio de Janeiro. It is located at Francisco Bicalho street, near the city center.

How to get to Copacabana

During New Year’s Eve, a lot of streets will be closed or will suffer some traffic change, so we suggest you to avoid moving around by car. 

To get to Copacabana from Rodoviária Novo Rio is possible to go with the bus shuttle Line 2017 (called Frescão). This bus departs from Rua Ecuador (Ecuador Street), near the Bus Station.

Alternatively, it's possible to get taxis, or a combination of LRV (Light Rail Vehicle) + Metro, and, finally, buses at Henrique Otte Bus Station, which is also close to Rodoviária Novo Rio and can be reached by a walking distance.
