a new Rio pass is launched

March 9, 2011 | By More

After the demise of the Rio Pass, the city had been orphan of a tourist pass similar to the one available in many tourist cities around the globe.

A new pass is now being launched with the name of Rio de Janeiro Pass.

The website has an English version. There are passes valid for 1, 3 or 7 days.

In comparison to similar passes across the globe, the Rio Pass is quite a pricey one, in particular if purchased for just the one day. Considering the current fare for the train tip up the Corcovado mountain to see the Christ Redeemer statue is R$36, and that the cable car to the Sugar Loaf Mountain coasts R$44, it doesn’t seem the pass offers a great deal for those spending one day in the city.

For longer stays, you will have to study carefully the different offering of the pass to decide whether it’s going to be worth your money.

For the time being the pass is only being sold through the website.
