Get in[edit]

By Plane

Uberlândia is served by one main airport (Aeroporto de Uberlândia - Tenente Coronel Aviador César Bombonato). Major carriers include TAM, Gol, and Azul. Daily flights connect Uberlândia to many major cities in Brazil - including São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, and Belo Horizonte.

Uberlândia is served by one major rodoviária. Interstate buses connect Uberlândia with the rest of Brazil.

Get around[edit]

Buses

Uberlândia is connected by an extensive system of buses and bus terminals - including 122 different bus routes (http://www.uberlandia.mg.gov.br/?pagina=linhaOnibus). The interconnected buses and terminals means a traveller can make any number of transfers and reach any part of the city for the price of a single bus ticket(single journeys cost 2.85 R$). The bus system includes several terminals - including Terminal Central, Terminal Santa Luzia, Terminal Umuarama, Terminal Planalto, and Terminal Industrial. Terminal Central is the central hub of the Uberlândia bus system, and the building serving the terminal also holds a multi-story shopping center holding many shops and restaraunts (including a food court right outside the turnstiles).

Taxis

Taxis are also quite common. Taxi meters from the airport start at around 4 R$. Taxi rates increase significantly after 8 pm. A night journey across the city can cost more than 50 R$. Rudimentary Portuguese is highly recommended.

Moto Taxis

Motorcycle taxis are a much cheaper alternative to regular taxis and are quite common. The price for a moto taxi often costs 50% that of a journey in a conventional taxi. Moto taxi services generally post their numbers on advertisements all around the city on telephone poles and payphone boxes. After phoning in, response times may vary from 5 minutes to 30 minutes.
