Getting Around

Porto Alegre’s metro, Trensurb, has convenient stations at Estação Mercado (by the port), Estação Rodoviária (the next stop) and the airport (three stops beyond). For Cidade Baixa, catch bus T5/T51/T52 from the airport or 282, 282.1, 244, 255, 272 or 343 from the bus station (R$4.30).

Both the metro and the bus stop sit between Terminals 1 and 2 (closer to 2). The free Aeromóvel (Brazil's first atmospherically powered people mover) connects the metro with Terminal 1 every 10 to 15 minutes. Terminal 2 is accessed by a 400m footbridge from the metro.
