From Airport:

From Guarulhos International Airport (GRU)
There's three options for traveling from GRU to Citylights. If you're on a budget, and don't have too much luggage, you can brave the bus and metro (R$6 /person) If you're alone, but aren't sure about the public bus, you can take a shuttle service and then the metro (R$38 /person). If you're with friends, or just want the safest and easiest option, we'll pick meet you outside customs and drive you to the hostel for R$120 (up to 4 people). You can also always catch a taxi at the airport - it's R$130.

Catch local Bus 257 to Metro Tatuape. It stops at the island outside Terminal 1. Pay the conductor near the turnstile after boarding (R$3). Get off at Tatuape station. Buy a single metro ticket from the "Billeteria" (R$3), and take Line 3 (Red) towards Palmeiras-Barra Funda. Get off at Republica and transfer to Line 4 (Yellow) headed towards Butantã. Get off at Faria Lima station, and look for a pink and black striped skyscraper (Instituto Tomie Ohtake) in the distance. Walk down Av. Faria Lima towards it for about 600 meters and turn right on Rua Padre Garcia Velho. We're a block and half up the street on the left-hand.


Outside Terminals 1 and 2, are taxi ticket booths labelled "Guaracoop". Show them the address, and they'll arrange a taxi for the fixed price of R$130. You can pay with in cash ($, €, $R), or with a credit card.
