From Buzios to Galeao International Airport

Hello!

I will be in Bzuios in a few weeks traveling with AutoViacao. I will take the very first bus leaving Buzios at 6am to Rio de Janeiro. My flight leaves at 12pm from GIG.

Is taking the 6am bus back to Rio smart considering they say traffic is bad? On AutoViacao website, it says approximate arrival time is 8:50am in Rio. I assume this is enough time to take a cab to the airport.

Any suggestions? Ideas? Concerns?

Anything helps!! Thank you in advance!

Arrival time at the bus station should be later than 9am. You may still get to the airport by 10am -- unless something bad happens in the city traffic jam (something not unusual lately).

If you want to have a good nightsleep not hinking of it, I'd try to get an earlier bus to RIo.

Hi Gina,

On this site http://www.linebuzios.com.br/reservas/ you will see that there is a direct transfer from Buzios into GIG (Galeao) that leaves at 6am. So no need to worry about getting off at the Rodoviaria to catch another connection to the airport.

Safe travels!

Which day of the week? If it's a weekend, I think you won't face relevant traffic jams.
