That is not Urban Transport, btw. That should go on the Brazil Highways thread or Brazil General Infrastructure.

And no, there are no busses to French Guyana, to get there overland from Sao Paulo you have to get on a bus to Belém, then get on a boat to Macapá, and then wait a few months for the opening of the Brazilian highway that connects Macapá to the French-Guyanese boarder bridge, which is already fully operational on the French side. But when that finally opens, it will be possible to (not so)comfortably travel from Brazil to the Eurozone overland.

Updated network map, including the new Fradique Coutinho station on line 4-Yellow and the new monorail line 15-Silver.

It also includes the upgrade (consisting of double-tracking and change of gauge) of the CPTM line 8-Diamond between Itapevi and Amador Bueno, in which Ambuitá and Cimenrita stations have not reopened (or at least, not yet -it is planned to reopen Ambuitá station though).

Right now, there are six extensions under construction:

-metro line 4-Yellow, between Butantâ and Vila Sônia (two stations), plus new Oscar Freire station (between Fradique Coutinho and Paulista) and Higienópolis-Mackenzie station (between Paulista and República), both in the section that's open.

-metro line 5-Lilac, between Adolfo Pinheiro and Chácara Klabin (ten stations, with future interchanges for monorail metro line 17-Gold at Campo Belo, for metro line 1-Blue at Santa Cruz, and for metro line 2-Green at Chácara Klabin).

-CPTM line 9-Emerald, between Grajaú and Varginha (two stations).

-new CPTM line 13-Jade, between Engenheiro Goulart and Guarulhos Airport (at least three stations, future interchange for CPTM line 12-Sapphire at Engenheiro Goulart).

-monorail metro line 15-Silver, between Oratório and Sâo Mateus (eight stations).

-new monorail metro line 17-Gold, between Morumbi and Brooklin Paulista and the branch between Brooklin Paulista and Congonhas Airport (seven stations, with future interchanges for CPTM line 9-Emerald at Morumbi, and for metro line 5-Lilac at Campo Belo).

The other two are Poá and Suzano.

Lines 2-Green and 15-Silver. Vila Prudente station.

Images of the interchange corridor between both lines, under construction.

Even though line 15-Silver is open between Vila Prudente and Oratório, it has a restricted service, only on weekends, so the transfer is not very useful nor needed yet. But soon, line 15-Silver will start normal operation, so then this corridor makes all the sense.
And very busy it will be...

Line 17 - Huge pillar being raised for the monorail. Does anybody have any idea why is it so high? It also has a different structure compared to the other pillars on this line (in a bended " T " format).

Line 17 will run on top of the power station and that motorway bridge, so probably they will build one of those bridges like the other one over the Pinheiros (you know which one I mean, I guess?). Anyway, I haven't got a clue, so you'd better ask in the Brazilian forum if you speak Portuguese.

Line 4-Yellow.

The image is horrible, buy it's proof that least one train in line 4-Yellow has been decorated with Christmas stuff, with LEDs and everything.

CPTM Line 9-Ruby, and construction works of Monorail Metro Line 17-Gold.

Morumbi station.

Images of the future connection between CPTM (commuter rail) and metro (the monorail under construction will be operated by CMSP).

Besides the nice skyscraper and the river Pinheiros, we get to see a few class 7000 EMUs.

Images taken on 21 November 2014:

Three videos made by the State of Sâo Paulo to show the state of the works by November 2014.

1) Metro Line 5-Lilac (extension between Adolfo Pinheiro and Chácara Klabin):

A few posts above I quoted some pictures of Ferraz de Vasconcelos station on CPTM line 11. It is not advanced at all.
And it is essential to upgrade that station and a couple more (Poá, and Suzano itself) to take Expresso Leste services there.

(awful) NEWS!

Extension of monorail line 15-Silver between Oratório and Sâo Mateus delayed.

It seems like they've made a big mistake... or have they?

They allegedly forgot to remember that a small river (called Córrego da Moóca) flows covered under Anhaia Mello Avenue, so that would make the three stations after Oratório (Sâo Lucas, Camillo Haddad, and Vila Tolstói) potentially unstable.

So the government says. Others might talk about other reasons...

Metro line 5-Lilac and monorail line 17-Gold (under construction).

Images of Campo Belo station (future interchange station between both lines)

Here line 5-Lilac will run underground, while line 17-Gold will run elevated:
