Rio Olympic Bus Legacy Could Shut Down

The bus-rapid transit line used to ferry spectators to the Rio Olympic Park will reportedly shut down due to safety and passenger concerns.

Buses will be removed from the Transoeste line according to a report from RJTV. The line in Rio de Janeiro’s far west connects Santa Cruz, Campo Grande, and Barra da Tijuca.

During the Rio 2016 Olympics Campo Grande hosted a live site in an effort to connect the whole city to the Games. The Transoeste line was used to transport passengers from the Line 4 Metro extension to the Olympic Park in Barra da Tijuca.

Construction for the Transoeste line cost $245.5 million. The buses which will reportedly be removed cost $30.7 million.
