bus or boat from rio to niteroi during carnival

help!!

So, i am a stupid gringo who is finding it hard to get information on bus timetables or boat timetables during carnival! we have got a free place in Niteroi if we want, but we dont know whether to stay there or not. Do the boats or buses run all night? would it be safe? would it take a stupid amount of time to go from one to the other?

I would take a boat. Safe, but you need to pay attention as in any big city.

The schedule and trip time can be found here:

The boats run only until 11:30 PM, The only buses run all night from Rio are the numbers:

- 100 ( Praça XV - Niterói)

- 751 ( Gávea - Charitas)

More one vote for boat.

Take the opportunity to have an early dining at Restaurante Olimpo, in Niteroi by the Sunset. It is right in front of Charitas ferry station.

Thank you everybody! I've decided to spend stupid amounts of money to stay in Copacabana then relax in niteroi after!!! Too much hassle over carnival!

Have you tried alternative neighborhoods such as

tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g303506-d305495…

tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g303506-d209829…

tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g303506-d191091…

These hotels are in the South Side of Rio, are close to subway stations (which will be handy for Sambadrome), and overall close to the attractions. Probably cheaper than hotels in Copacabana.

Cheers
