You can find on this page the map of Rio de Janeiro tram. Rio tram is a transit system serving the city of Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) with the subway, the urban, suburban & commuter train, the bus or the ferry. The tram network has 2 lines forming a rail network of 4 miles (7 km).

Rio de Janeiro's tramway used to be the most prestigious tramway network in Latin America. Over the past 20 years, successive governments have invested little in the tramway. Only three tram lines cross Rio de Janeiro, with a total length of 28km. But things seem to be changing. Rio de Janeiro's tramway was inaugurated on 5 June 2016 on a 7-kilometre stretch and a third line opened in 2019. The network has a total of 29 stations.

Rio de Janeiro trams exist since 1875 and its network includes the following 2 lines:

  • Line 1: Largo da Carioca ↔ Morro Dois Irmãos
  • Line 2: Largo da Carioca ↔ Paula Matos


The Santa Teresa line, which opened in 1875, is one of the oldest in the world. This line is open 6 days a week, from 11am to 4pm from Monday to Saturday with a trip every 20 minutes. If you're in a hurry, we don't recommend the tram, as it is very crowded. On the other hand, the tram can be an original way to visit Rio de Janeiro.
