Armed attacks on bus Jul 01, 2011
Just last night (9th June) we got attacked on the bus from Belem to Sao Luis. I read it in some travel books that this happens, but it happens too often !!! Driver told us that it was his 6th attack. It happend close to city called Zé Doca.

Bus agency (Transbrasiliana) is not doing anything about this attacks and police is totally ignorant. I even suspect that driver is in some kind of deal with robbers due to his actions and behavior.

Four guys made barricades on the HIGHWAY to stop the bus. At the gun point (they had hand guns and one rifle) they asked for money and moved bus to remote dirt road, where all guys had to go out from the bus.

Lots of stuff got taken but luckily no one was hurt.

Use day buses, or fly to any of the airports in the area.

Good luck to all ...
