Arriving and Departing

Few visitors to Rio travel by rail. The urban network serves the North Zone of the city, which is less visited by tourists, and trains tend to be hot, overcrowded and uncomfortable. Long distance trips are generally made by bus or plane. Should you have reason to take a local train, these leave from the central station, Estação Dom Pedro II Central do Brasil.

Train Information
