  1. Thanks everyone for the great inputs. The transportation system and maps are very confusing. Especially considering that many maps have not been updated and there is little information on line 4.

    We are staying in Barra near the Sheraton and assume that to get to the OC, the best bet is to get to line 4 and then transfer to line 1 and get off at SÃO FRANCISCO XAVIER. We would then walk to the stadium.

    Forget which bus it is, but I believe there is a bus that stops near the Sheraton and goes to the line 4 terminal. Can anyone confirm this? TIA

    Should have specified the Sheraton Barra

  2. I'm getting a ton of emails from cosport letting me know they still have packages, tickets, etc.

    Methinks demand is way down from what they expected.

    Probably because people can now buy tickets directly from Rio2016 for a much cheaper price. CoSport needs to try and sell as much as they can to make their profits.

    As for demand, just look at the availability at both the CoSport and Rio sites.

  3. I thought that Rio only promised the BRT for the olympics and the metro was planned to be ready after the games. An effort was made to make it ready before and seems they have succeeded. If ticket holders and accredited people will can use the metro during the games (and that is the reason for the early opening) then what is the problem?

    The press has reported numerous times that the metro was a key element in their transportation plan bid.

  4. I'm looking for 2 tickets for VO010 , A or B Cat. Anyone? Here in Chile Cartan doesn't have volleyball available :(

    Do you have any friends in the US? Cosport currently has V0010 Cat A available.

    Can not find any information on the Rio2016 site about foreign tickets sales. Remember hearing about this some time ago but have heard nothing since. Anyone have a link with the information?

  5. I got downgraded from A to C in a freestyle wrestling event in Round 1, so I can attest that they were doing that.

    It makes you wonder who the hundred or so people were who got the 100m final and didn't pay up for them...

    The issue that I see is that we applied for a ton of Beach VB sessions. Received absolutely NONE. Yet today almost all were available. Same with Diving and gymnastics. Had numerous people apply and received none. Yet available today.

    Maybe we were just lucky on the live sale and were able to get what we really wanted........

  6. I suspect the reason is that so many people got skunked in the first two rounds. Also, I received a couple of notifications from CoSport 2 hours after the site went live. So if someone was not watching and they did not get in until 2 hours after the site went live, they had a very limited selection of tickets. A couple of things are surprising. First, there are still basketball tickets left. Second, it appears the majority of the tickets were in C and D categories. It makes me wonder if CoSport did not downgrade people when they could not get the ticket category they asked for.
