Arriving in Brasília
There are two ways to go from Brasília International Airport to your Hotel:
1. You can take a taxi, that will cost around R$50,00 (circa US$16.00 or €14.00). There are taxis already parked at Airport, but you might consider make a call to (+55) 61-33213030 (Alvorada Radiotaxi) and you will get 20% discount over the taxi fare.
2. You can take the Executive Bus (Ônibus Executivo) parked right in front of International Arrival exit. This bus leaves every 30 minutes and costs R$8,00 (circa US$2.60 or €2.30). Tell to driver the name of your hotel, and the driver will let you know when you get there. Executive Bus serves only North (SHN) and South (SHS) hotel sectors. Therefore, if you will stay in any hotel located in Touristic Sector you must to use taxi.
Moving from your Hotel to University of Brasília (UNB)
We had scheduled shuttles to pick the participants up at Saint Moritz Hotel. However, UNB got into strike last Wednesday and there is no prevision about the end of it. For this reason, the drivers are not authorized to take the Van out of the garage. So, the better way to come to UNB from North or South Hotel Sectors is taking a taxi. From Saint Moritz Hotel until UNB a taxi will cost about R$20,00 (circa US$6.30). So, gather some people and split the taxi fare is easiest thing to do (Thanks for your understanding).
