Buses are available from Porto Alegre, Pelotas, Rio Grande, and seasonally from Florianopolis. Because Chuí is a very small city, buses only run a few times a day, so look up the schedules beforehand. Buses stop at the 1 Estação Rodoviária de Chuí at R. Venezuela, 247.
(Chuí-Porto Alegre tickets with company Planalto can only be bought in person at Chuí bus station, so sometimes the schedule do not appear on search engines. But the timetable is the same in both directions, that is two services a day: 13:00 and 23:30)
The border is open, so you're free to walk back and forth between Chuí and Chuy. If you plan to continue into Uruguay past the town of Chuy, though, make sure you get your passport stamped at 2 passport control before entering the town. Bus drivers should stop there and wait for you if you ask them to. When leaving Chuy for the rest of Uruguay, you'll likewise need to stop at 3 Uruguayan passport control, and the same thing in reverse if you're coming from Uruguay to Brazil.
