Tamanduateí street access




Vila Prudente station

Both are likely to open by June/July 2010 (Vila Prudente maybe earlier, although it comes after Tamanduateí).

The structure is not ready yet, so you are complaining about things that are not in their final form.

It really isn't difficult to get things like that right the first time. If it looks like crap, it might really be crap. Sorry, that's the truth.

Congratulations to Sao Paulo for their creativity and style in the planning and design of their new rail transit lines which in turn are attracting more and more passengers. In the US many very poorly designed new rail transit systems are falling way below their expected ridership numbers.

Once again Congratulations to Sao Paulo.

All the best.

Actually most new US systems have beaten their ridership projections by a considerable amount. As for design, it varies a lot.

I don't think he meant design as in style, but in terms of project, he meant "poorly conceived systems" (I think, but I do not necessary agree as I do not know enough, let's leave it for a US-transit thread).
