Getting Around

There are three airports in São Paulo: Congohas Airport, São Paulo International, and Viracopos Airport -check with your airline or travel agents to see which carries fly where. Their distances from the city center are 14km, 30km, and 100km respectively, and all of them offer bus and taxi service to the downtown area. Note, however, that the cost of transportation downtown will increase according to the distance of the airport, for example at Viracopos, be prepared to pay $50USD, while Congohas and SP International will only cost you about $7USD.

There are three types of taxis in São Paulo: street cabs, radio cabs, and deluxe cabs. Street and radio cabs are metered, but radio cabs charge extra for radio service and pre-arranged pick-ups.

São Paulo's subway, regarded as one of the best systems in the world, is a great way to get around and avoid the city's infamous traffic. There are two major lines: the North-South and the East- West. All lines operate from 5am to midnight, ticket windows close at 10pm.

There are four train stations in São Paulo. The Barra Funda Station on Rua Capitao-Mor Goncalo Monteiro offers a Silver Train to Rio de Janeiro, which departs daily at 8:30pm. The Luz Station has trains to the interior and coast. Sub- urban trains heading to Itapevi can be caught at Julio Prestes Station, while trains east to Mogi das Cruzes board at Roosevelt Station.
