The Bus rides 24h per day and for R$18 only, tourists will manage to ride from the Airport to Alvares Cabral Avenue in Belo Horizonte.
The ride is about 50 minutes long.
Depending on the departing time, some buses even stop at the Pampulha airport.
If you’re planning to go to Belo Horizonte by plane (through Confins’ Airport) be aware that it takes another long way to make it to Belo Horizonte’s downtown.
If you take a taxi from this airport you’ll pay something around 70 reais (32 USD, at today’s exchange rate). So, I suggest you take the executive bus. It costs only 13,45 reais/ person and takes you to Av Alvares Cabral, 387- Centro (Downtow) in 40 to 50 minutes.
It’s a very safe and comfortable bus.
At the end of the line you’ll always find taxi cabs parked outside, so you can continue your journey to your final destination.
You can even save a little more going back to the airport at the same bus….
From the airport to BH they start leaving at 00:15h to 23:50 (around 42 departures spread over the day)
From BH to the airport they start at 04:20 and the last departure is 22:10h

Location: staying inside Contorno AVe. is paramount. If you stay in Lourdes, Funcionarios, Santo Agostinho or Savassi then you can expect to catch the YEllow Bus: SC02, SC03, SC04. however they do NOT run on the weekends or late evenings so be prepared to catch the Blue Buses or cabs(taxis) or simply WALK. Actually walking and riding the yellow buses are the *best combinations. *(Also the cheapest means of transportation).
