Several people commented that the violence had greatly improved and that Rio de Janeiro is much safer now. Let’s hope that it will stay that way even after the World Cup and Olympics
The city of Rio is also working on the infrastructure with new roads and new subway stations. Some of the future plans include getting new public bathrooms and workout stations at the famous Ipanema and Copacabana beaches. And for those that love to ride bicycles will enjoy renting a bike from the Paris-style bike stations that are going up all around the city. Plans include the ease of renting these bikes via text messaging or internet and being able to drop off the bike at any of the bike stations along the beach.
Here is a picture of one of the Bike Stations: Bike Station Picture
