Project Details


Transcarioca bus rapid transit (BRT) system is designed to connect neighborhoods located in opposite zones of Rio de Janeiro city, serving around 440,000 passengers per day and reducing travel time along the route by 60%. The project includes a 39km BRT line, 45 stations and four terminals linking the Galeão international airport in the north of the city to the Alvarado terminal in the Barra de Tijuca region in the far south. The project also entails building three tunnels, 10 viaducts and nine bridges, besides building extra lanes and carrying out works on bordering areas. The BRT system will be developed in two stages: the first part includes a stretch from Barra de Tijuca to Penha, while the second includes a stretch from Penha to Galeão airport.
