It was good until around 4 am, when the bus got hit by a big stone, breaking one of the windows on the right side; thank God nobody got hurt but the problem was that the driver stopped right away and kept us there for more than an hour, putting everybody in danger, because if they threw the stone to stop us to rob us, we were pretty much where they wanted us to be. The driver call the police, but took a while for them to show up. I think would be wiser if he had driven further down then stop since nobody was hurt. We got late to our destination and nothing was said to us. Lack of communication was one thing that bothered me, and the staff need to be trained to seek the safety of the passengers.

Buses are energy-efficient. Carrying a passenger over 100 kms by coach only takes 0.6-0.9 liters of gas. Compare that to the 2.6 liters required by high-speed train, 6.6 liters by airplane and 7.6 liters by gas-powered car, and it's clear that the bus is a more environmentally-conscious option for your bus transportation from São Paulo to Curitiba.
