Ground Transportation

An official provider of ground transportation between the airport and various hotels has been arranged for World Sleep 2023 in Rio de Janeiro. The official provider is JulyTur.

Please note that this is not guaranteed to be private transportation. Drivers will be bilingual with English and Portuguese communication.

Reserve Airport – Hotel Transportation

Official Taxis at Airport

Official licensed taxis are also available at the airport. If arriving to the main international airport in Rio de Janeiro (GIG, RIOgaleão – Tom Jobim International Airport), look for the taxi counter after customs and before the luggage retrieval area.

Transportation within Rio de Janeiro

Within Rio de Janeiro, we recommend the use of licensed taxi drivers when possible. Uber is also widely available in Rio de Janeiro, but we recommend the use of the “Uber Black” premium service when using Uber. Please take common-sense precautions while arranging for these services, verifying that you are entering the correct vehicle and that the driver has a good record if using Uber. Most drivers will likely not speak English. When possible, we recommend pre-arranging transportation through a credible provider or through your hotel.

Transportation to and from the Gala Dinner

Monday night’s gala dinner will take place approximately a half-hour’s drive away from the congress venue. There will be shuttle transportation provided between the gala dinner venue and the congress venue; the cost of this shuttle transportation is included within your gala dinner ticket.
