  As Barcas by RTL
by RafaelTheSecond

The traditional people from both cities, Rio and Niteroi name the Barcas as BARCA DA CANTAREIRA...it is a very useful way to get rid of the so crazy traffic jams in the bridge and also in downtown Rio, they have been working since 1890, of course the boats were changing during all this time.

These boats were made in the 60's and work perfectly until our present days.

The ticket cost 2 reais, you should try it.
