Alternatively, catch the red bus 75 at the airport curb (hourly from 7am to 7pm) to the ‘Terminal,’ where you can switch to bus 20 (hourly from 7:35am to 7:35pm), which passes Galeria Bela Palma in the center. Do the reverse to get back. In either direction, the first leg is R$4; the second leg is free.


Most long-distance buses do not enter Palmas, stopping instead in the highway-side town of Paraíso do Tocantins, 15km west of Palmas; note that departures listed here are from Paraíso. To get between Paraíso and Palmas, minibuses operated by Tocantinsense loop around every 30 to 60 minutes (R$15, 45 minutes) from roughly 6:30am to 10pm, with reduced services on weekends. Catch inbound shuttles at the Paraíso bus station, outbound ones at the bus stop in front of Galeria Bela Palma in Palmas.
