The September 7 parade on the Esplanada dos Ministérios with the presence of Jair Bolsonaro (PL) has not yet started to stimulate demand for bus tickets to Brasilia.
According to ClickBus, a market place for the sale of transport tickets, the federal capital only appears in sixth place among the most searched destinations for the date. Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo and Curitiba are ahead.
The platform notes that buying behavior in the road sector could heat up the day before.
Of Buser’s top five Independence Day vacation itineraries, none include Brasilia as a destination. The company says that because it’s a midweek vacation, travel volume doesn’t tend to be as high as other holidays.
As of Monday (29), Buser had over 17,000 bookings made for all destinations for September 7, considering round trips, i.e. September 6-8. Last year, when the holidays fell on Tuesday, the startup mentioned an expectation of 100,000 passengers on that date.
“This holiday on Wednesday preposterously lowers our expectation of increased demand. One thing is a holiday on Tuesday because you change Monday and have high demand, regardless of the event, for the campaign, the coast”, says Letícia Pineschi, from Abrati (association of passenger transport companies).
With demonstrations of support for Bolsonaro forecast in Brasília, supporters expect the president to speak in a sound car before heading to Rio de Janeiro.
In the capital Rio de Janeiro, he is expected to participate in a demonstration in favor of the government in Copacabana, where the Armed Forces are expected to carry out exhibitions of the Navy and the Air Force.
