Beat the crowds. Get there easy for less!

The only way to get near
Normal busses do not run on Parade days around the Sambodromo and the subway stations are far to walk.
Taxis have to drop you off well before the entrances as only specially licenced vehicles can get near and inside the Sambodromo. Most streets will be closed and it is difficult to navigate around to find your sector.

The only way to get inside
The Rio-Carnival special fleet of busses are exclusively licenced to take you right inside the venue, pass all the crowds. They will pick you up right from there, too, to whisk you right back to the pick up/drop off point of you preference (choose one available below), when you are tired.

Guides to assist you
Specially trained bilingual Rio Carnival guides will accompany you during your trip to the Sambodromo. They will look after you and provide you with all useful information. They will also assist you to find your sector on your arrival and help to easily find your way back.

Safest way
Play wise - get right inside the venue behind the gates where high security is the standard.

Comfort
Your express bus will whisk you right inside the Sambodromo from the very place where you stay when all other traffic grinds to a halt.
And finally, at the end of a very long day, you will surely appreciate a well equipped vehicle waiting for you and that you will not have to chase other means of transport in the small hours among the crowd, when tired and exhausted. Just collapse into the comfort of your seat and stretch out your legs. Enjoy being looked after.

Excellent value
The Sambodromo shuttle service is of truly excellent value for your money. Rates are set cheap to make it available to everyone. The objective is to facilitate your Sambodromo transfer and make your Rio Carnival experience unique and unforgettable.
Taxi fares skyrocket on Carnival days (and sometimes depend on Portuguese negotiation skills). The shuttle service charge minimum rates, significantly cheaper than taxi fares.

The Rio-Carnival busses run on Samba Parade days: Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Champion's Saturday.
Vehicles run very frequently towards the Sambodromo from 19:00 onwards. As the show only begins at 21:00, the first vehicles arrive at the Sambodromo just after 19:45, giving you enough time to get good seats in the grandstands.
Return vehicles leave the Sambodromo at the end of every school's parade beginning from the end of the third school parade.
