BRT Transbrasil

BRT Transbrasil
Transport type: 

At 32 kilometres long, the TransBrasil promises to reduce travel time between the Deodoro neighbourhood and the Santos Dumont Airport in the city centre, Centro. In the TransBrasil project, the historic Avenida Brasil will receive a series of roadway improvements: 30 thousand square meters in bridges and viaducts will be built.

A system for the high capacity buses, the so-called Ligeirões (BRT – Bus Rapid Transit) was created to shorten distances and reduce travel time from one part of the city to another. The system will count three other corridors: TransCarioca, TransBrasil and TransOlímpica. Together, they will form a high capacity transportation ring uniting the city.
