Public transport and its importance

Public transport plays a fundamental role in the daily routine of countless people, especially in metropolises, where the need to travel to work, school or university is constant.

Therefore, it is essential that the population is always aware of changes and innovations in this sector, in order to adapt and make the most of the advantages offered.

Jaé: Riocard’s replacement

According to recently leaked information, Rio de Janeiro City Hall is about to implement a transition that has been underway since July 2023: the replacement of Riocard with Jaé, a digital ticket system.

The date set for the complete change is February 1, 2024. Jaé’s proposal is not only to modernize the payment system, but also to provide the City Hall with real-time data on revenue, passenger demand and flow in the public transportation.

Ending the "Black Box"

One of the motivations behind the transition to Jaé, as explained by Mayor Eduardo Paes (PSD), is the search for transparency in the management of public transport.

City Hall will have access to data from the new system in real time, which will allow it to make more informed and effective decisions.

This measure aims to eliminate what the mayor calls the "black box" of the system, bringing more responsibility and efficiency to Rio's public transport.

End of the Riocard era

Since November 2023, passengers in the city of Rio de Janeiro have had the option to choose between Riocard and Jaé.

However, this choice will come to an end on February 1, 2024, with the last phase of implementation of Jaé.

From this moment on, Riocard will no longer be accepted on the city’s buses and subways, marking the end of an era and the beginning of a new way of using public transport.

Who will be free at Jaé?

A common concern among passengers is the continuity of free services on the new Jaé system.

According to information released, the following groups will continue to receive benefits:

People over 65 years of age; Public school students; People with disabilities; ePatients undergoing treatment for chronic diseases.

Overall, this demonstrates the commitment to ensuring accessibility and inclusion in the new transport system.

In conclusion, the arrival of Jaé and the farewell to the bus and subway card are important events for the locals.

In turn, this transition promises to bring not only new payment technology, but also greater transparency and efficiency in the management of public transport.

Therefore, stay tuned for changes and take advantage of the advantages that Jaé offers to users of public transport in Rio, contributing to a more connected and accessible city.
