Tram in Centro & Cinelândia

Part of an urban-renewal project, the VLT is a light rail with various routes throughout downtown. Line 1 links Aeroporto Santos Dumont with AquaRio, stopping at Cinelândia and Parada dos Museus (for access to Museu de Arte do Rio) among other stops. To ride, purchase a Rio Card (R$3) and add credit at station kiosks.
