Nice trains and transport system, although it needs heavy expansion!

Does anybody know if there will be a train/metro connecting GRU airport to downtown Sao Paulo ready for the World Cup?
I have been to Sao Paulo many times and I know how hard it is to leave that airport.

Yes and... no.

There is a project, but very few chances of being built by 2014.

Unfortunately many problems with the original plans from 2007 for the Airport Express (especially potential competition with the Rio-SP high speed rail project which did not get started either) delayed everthing, and the current plan is a shortened line from the airport to CPTM line 12 near Engenheiro Gualberto station. Then you have to transfer to line 12 and then get to Brás, where you have to transfer to get anywhere interesting in the city.

And probably this line, called line 13, will not be ready by the 2014 World Cup. . I'd say 2015 is more likely.
