TRENSURB station map.

By train[edit]

Locals call it the TRENSURB. You can take the train from the airport to many stops in Canoas and to cities beyond (Porto Alegre, Esteio, Sapucaia do Sul, São Leopoldo and Novo Hamburgo). The fare is R$1.70 and there's a station near the Porto Alegre Rodoviaria (central bus station) and Porto Alegre Salgado Filho airport. It is more or less safe to walk during day time from Rodoviaria or the airport to the stations.
