How to get to IMPA
From the airport
On leaving the airport we suggest that you take a taxi. There are several companies that have booths located inside the airport facilities, on the way out. A ride to South Zone costs around R$120 to R$150 and takes about 50 minutes. There are also special buses leaving from Terminals 1 and 2, whose routes you can find here.
There are three bus lines running near the Institute:
- 409 – Saens Peña – Horto (via Lapa)
- 416 – Saens Peña – Jardim Botânico (Horto) (via Túnel Rebouças)
You can check which buses line is the best for you by clicking here.
The passenger must pay as they enter, using the front door to get on the bus and the rear door to get off the bus. The bus fare is R$ 3,80 and the maximum change given is for a R$ 20,00 bill.
