Possibilidades de melhorias no sistema de transporte intermunicipal: o caso da ligação aquaviária Manaus e Careiro da Várzea

The Amazon Region has a high extent of waterways. This geographical characteristic turned out in the extreme dependence of the waterway mode of transportation to dislocate local people. Given the importance of this type of transport for the region, it is necessary that the vessels used, by the population, for intercity travels to be in accordance with harbors’ rules and ergonomic norms, what generally does not occur. Problems of passengers’ access and circulation and of security are verified in most boats. Therefore, an analysis in the Amazon state’s vessels was performed with the aim of proposing improvements to the existing conditions.
