Air

Joinville-Lauro Carneiro de Loyola Airport is 13km north from the city; regular flights go to Campinas and São Paulo.

To reach the airport, catch bus 800/Iririú (R$4.30) from Box 3 at the Terminal Central and switch at Terminal Iririú for the 0240 'Aeroporto via Emilio Landmann' to the airport (plan on an hour ride to be safe).

Bus

The bus station is 2km southwest of the city center. Local buses go every 15 minutes to the city center from a stop just outside the station on Rua Parnaíba (R$4.65). Viacão Verdes Mares (www.vmares.com.br) runs regular buses to Ilha de São Francisco, both from the bus station (R$17.30), and, more conveniently and cheaply, from Centro (R$14.10).
