  • Gain insight into the world's best-in-class practices and discover international excellence in bus operations and bus technology trends- all in a compact two-day format
  • Go behind the scenes of some of Rio’s most interesting public transport sites, including the redevelopment of major bus corridors and BRT and BRS projects
  • Combine your stay with a side-visit to the local Brazilian trade expo (ETRANSPORT) with Brazilian bus industries, manufacturers and IT solutions providers
