Brasilia is a major hub for travel withing Brazil, so there are numerous flights that go through the city's
airport every day. The airport is located south of the city, about 5 miles, or 8 kilometers from downtown Brasilia. To get from the airport to the city without a car, you can take a taxi or a bus. A taxi will cost you about R$35, or about 15 US dollars. The bus, on the other hand, is much cheaper. Route 102 travels between the airport and the city center, where you can catch other buses or the metro going to the hotel districts or other parts of the city.
Busses also pass through the city frequently. Buses arrive at the long-distance bus station on the city's western axis. From there you can take a bus to other parts of the city. Travel time to Rio de Janeiro is 18 hours, and 15 hours to Sao Paulo.
There are two entrances to the city, the
Saida Sul and the
Saida Norte on the southern and northern sides of the city respectively. Roadsigns from there direct you to where you want to go.
