Urban transportation in Belo Horizonte by BH TRANS

From the Airport Confins to Belo Horizonte take the bus called "
Connexão aeroporto" in front of the Airport (about R$ 17). Go to the end point ("Álvares Cabral") in the center and take a taxi (about R$ 15) afterwards to the hotel.

Low budegt solution, cross all platforms to the end in front af the airport and take a bus to the central busstation ("Rodoviaria", ca R$ 7) and afterwards take a local bus (R$ 2.30) to São Pedro / Savassi in the Avenida Afonso Pena at 5 min walk.

This last solution is NOT advised for not experienced travallers especially females after 8 PM. The area betwee the busstation and Avenida A.Pena is area of pick-pockets and homeless people.
