In Brazil, to purchase a ticket online directly from one of the above companies you will need a CPF number which is like a Brazilian Tax File number. If not a Brazilian citizen you can purchase your ticket in advance from the Green Toad but they only offer Executive seating.
 

All of the above classes are air conditioned and feature an onboard lavatory. Sometimes the air conditioning can run too strong and its best to take something warm just in case. No food is offered on the bus but they do make about two comfort stops during the trip where you can use bathrooms and purchase snacks and drinks.

 

If you purchase your ticket at the Novo Rio terminal directly, try to be there about an hour before the departure of the bus you want to have a chance to get a seat, more to be super secure. During high season and public holidays you may wish to go some days before. The companies accept credit cards, and once you purchase your ticket from one of the desks on the second floor of the Novo Rio terminal, check which platform you will depart from which will be printed on your ticket.

 

If travelling with large baggage then once your bus arrives take the bags to the back of the bus where an attendant will put them in the under storage compartment and give you a small receipt which you must produce to collect your luggage in Sao Paulo. Before boarding your bus the attendant will also check your passport and note down the details; this is common in Brazil if you are travelling between states.
