Heli- Taxis in Brazil help people rise above a bad commute

Americas Now

We all know the feeling of being stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic. You’ve probably imagined what it would be like to just fly over it. Well in Sao Paulo, Brazil you actually can.

A new transportation service allows you to hail a helicopter to fly you to your destination much like a taxicab.

The only difference it won’t pick you up on the street. You need to board it from one of the city’s 400 helipads.

Take a look at these images of heli-taxis in Brazil.
