The funicular train up costs R$36 (students pay 50% - R$18 but are usually requested to prove showing some ID or document) for a round trip up to Cristo Redentor, and it is definitely worth the view. The queue for the train, in Cosme Velho, can get rather long; you purchase a ticket for a particular departure time (that day only). Try going when the morning coach parties have already passed through, i.e. when most tourists are having their lunch. Take a taxi to Cosme Velho, or take the Metro-Onibus Expresso combination (see above) from the Largo do Machado station. If you opt for a taxi to the up instead of the funicular, it's R$20 round-trip to enter the park, then another R$18 or so for the shuttle up to the monument. Note that the Santa Teresa tram line (bondinho), while charming in its own right, does not conveniently connect with the funicular to Corcovado.
