The buses that will be roading is at Frescáo Style (tipical bus that runs some routes inside Rio de Janeiro allready) and will be passing throught 14 points of the city with 10 different times for the first way and seven different times to the way back. Will stop in Rio Centro, 250 meters from the entrance of the festival. The same system applies to the return trip, but beware that the back has no appointment.


The sale will be made by the web site of the RioCard, that was built specific to this event, and the passenger will receive the card at home. Because it is a special system, you must purchase the round trip, totaling R $ 35 plus the cost of freight for delivery at home.

We extremally recommend this way if you are unfamiliar with Rio de Janeiro and don’t want to get in troubles paying huge prices for the taxi drivers. The City of Rock is far from the city centre, airports, south zone (touristic zone) as well as from the North Zon, so this really seems to be the best option to get this party started.
