Getting There & Away

These twin towns are served by nearly identical bus stations, positioned directly across the river from each other at each base of the bridge: most trips commence on the São Félix side, stopping to pick up passengers in Cachoeira before continuing out of town.

Numerous daily buses run to Salvador (R$27, two hours, 5:30am to 7pm), stopping in Santo Amaro along the way.

To make connections north, south or west, you can also catch one of Transporte Santana's various daily services to Feira de Santana (R$11, 1½ hours, six daily Monday to Saturday, five on Sunday).
