The airport is 28km from the city center (via the Paralela expressway) or 32km (via the seaside). Two kinds of taxis are available in the airport, the '''executive taxis''' (Coometas and Comtas), and the '''normal taxis''' (careful, they have bad reputation, taking travelers around and around to keep the meter running and most of them only speak Portuguese). Executive taxis are pre-paid, they have a table of prices rather than a meters. The other taxi option would be the '''normal taxis''' which are metered. The third option definitly is UBER, drivers have good reputation and are willing to do the best to please you at very reasonable prices. A fourth option would be the executive air-conditioned '''minibuses''' which depart every 20 minutes to the Praça da Sé, in downtown near ''Pelourinho'' via the seaside, stopping at famous beaches like Ondina, Pituba, Amaralina and Itapuã, and Barra as well as stopping by Shopping Barra--an American-style shopping mall located not too far from the Farol da Barra The fare for these buses is R$5. Another option is the '''urban buses''' that go to many parts of the city (and have a known reputation for their lack of security as many assaults happen) but not an option if you have traditional luggage, for the tourist the options are Lapa, Campo Grande and São Joaquim buses, the best thing is ask the driver before taking an urban bus, the fare is R$3,80 (3.80 reals). Linha Verde executive buses go to ''Praia do Forte'' and depart often from the airport.

There is also a luxury bus called "First Class", leaving from the airport (turn right out the airport and walk to the final stand) that takes you to Praça da Sé at a cost of R28 pp, dropping off people on the way.

If you want to take the minibus or urban bus, they pick up behind the parking lot that is directly across from the arrivals exit. You will need to walk through the parking lot. Be aware that there are no signs directing you to the place where the buses stop, you just have to find it yourself.
