CPTM | Line 12-Sapphire.

A class 2000 EMU doing some tests (probably driver training) at USP-Leste station.
The rumour that class 2000 will replace older rolling stock on line 12 (almost surely class 5550, and quite possibly class 4400 too), keeps gaining momentum.

CPTM | New rolling stock.

First class 9500 EMU unveiled, built by Rotem. Looks good.

Only that I don't like that pinkish tone. I prefer the red of the other series.

Word has it that class 9500 will be sent to line 9-Emerald, where they will replace class 7000 and 7500, which would/could be cascaded onto line 7-Ruby (which desperately needs new trains, as that's the stronghold of the oldest rolling stock -class 1100, 1400, 1600-).

CPTM | Line 9 extension (Grajaú-Varginha).

Update: a few images of Mendes-Vila Natal station.
I'm not sure wether this one is a reconstruction of an old station, or a newly created station.

METRO | Line 5-Lilac (extension Adolfo Pinheiro-Chácara Klabin).

More images from June 2016. Find others here: http://www.metro.sp.gov.br/obras/lin...otos/2016.aspx

A point (or switch in American English).
It will be located after Adolfo Pinheiro station and before the Conde de Itú shaft:

First rails on the line 5 extension, although these are not the definitive ones:

SAO PAULO | Infrastructures for 2034...

A more or less unofficial map with all the metro, monorail, suburban rail (CPTM), regional rail, HSR, BRT, and even tramway (!!!) extensions, be them under construction, planned, or under discussion (including SSC-level discussion ).

This is how it allegedly should be looking like by the year 2034. I seriously doubt it will be this advanced, but what do I know?

- Metro line 5-Lilac extension from Adolfo Pinheiro to Chácara Klabin and also from Capâo Redondo to Jardim Ângela.
- Metro line 6-Orange from Brasilândia to Sâo Joaquim, but also probably its Eastern extension from Sâo Joaquim to Cidade Líder (would greatly relieve line 3-Red).
- CPTM line 9-Emerald extension from Grajaú to Varginha, and re-routing from CEASA towards Água Branca instead of Osasco.
- CPTM line 11-Coral extension of the Expresso Leste quick service from Guaianases to Suzano.
- CPTM line 12-Sapphire extension from Calmon Viana to Suzano.
- CPTM line 13-Jade extension from Engenheiro Goulart to Tiquatira (subject to modifications).
- CPTM line 9-Emerald Expresso Oeste-Sul, new limited-stop service from Barueri to Santo Amaro.
- CPTM line 10-Turquoise Expresso ABC, new limited-stop service from Luz to Mauá, leaving the current service between Brás and Rio Grande da Serra to call at all stations.
- Monorail line 15-Silver, current extension between Oratório and Iguatemi, but also Iguatemi-Hospital Cidade Tiradentes and Vila Prudente-Ipiranga.
- Monorail line 17-Gold (excepting the section between Congonhas and Sacomã which has been definitively cancelled).
- Monorail line 18-Bronze (just the Alvarengas branch).
- New CPTM stations at Bom Retiro and Água Branca.
I agree, excepting the Bon Retiro station which I don't quite think will be ready by then.

I also think that metro lines 19, 20 and 22 (and probably metro line 16 too) will be at least under construction by then.

SAO PAULO | Metro and CPTM extensions.

According to this article, which quotes the Sâo Paulo state governor:

viatrolebus.com.br (July 23, 2016, article in Portuguese)


Works on the metro line 4-Yellow extension from Butantâ to Vila Sônia, including the unfinished stations Óscar Freire and Higienópolis-Mackenzie, could be restarted this August 2016.

Higienópolis-Mackenzie station should be open in 9 months, Óscar Freire station in 12 months, and Sâo Paulo-Morumbi station in 18 months.
Vila Sônia station should be open in 2 years and a half.

All four stations should see their construction works restart at once.

As for the metro line 5-Lilac extension from Adolfo Pinheiro to Chácara Klabin, the governor promised to open 10 stations in 2017, that is, all of them but Campo Belo which is less advanced and would open in 2018.

Concerning the CPTM line 9-Emerald extension from Grajaú to Varginha, the Sâo Paulo governor said it would open in 22 months (in 2018).

As for the new CPTM line 13-Jade (Engenheiro Goulart-Guarulhos Airport), the governor promised it would take less than 2 years to open.

As for the new CPTM rolling stock, he said that Hyundai (Rotem) will be delivering a new train every 15 days (I assume he meant CPTM class 9500...).

Let's see if it all comes true, then...

ps: No words on monorail lines 15-Silver and 17-Gold, though...

The only two lines I actually believe are going to be done by the time Alckmin says they're going to be done are lines 4 and 5... the other ones, I'm not so sure.

Probably still sorting out the details of the new contracts.

Who knows, lines 4 and 5 are taking so long to build that one could be in for even more new bad surprises...

But Sâo Paulo does REALLY NEED these two lines working at full potential.

A thing that particularly disappoints me is the lack of any upgrade plan for Paulista/Consolaçâo stations, the link between lines 2-Green and 4-Yellow is totally overcrowded, even off-peak. Paulista/Consolaçâo station is too small, that was a big mistake.

Looks like the latest new problem on line 17-Gold is the rolling stock.
The Malaysia company that should be building it (can't remember its name right now) is in trouble, it seems.

I also suspect that rolling stock for monorail lines is too small.
They should have exactly the same pattern as CPTM or metro.

In fact, there's a monorail in China which totally looks like a normal metro excepting the fact it's a monorail.

Yep. I've totally given up on that link. I usually prefer going to Luz on Line 4-Yellow and then changing to Line 1-Blue instead of taking the "shortcut" through Avenida Paulista and the Green line.

Agree. We're too big of a city to think that those monorail lines won't be overcrowded.

How long does it take to walk from Paulista to Consolaçâo along the Zombie Walk at peak hours?

Even though its rolling stock is a bit larger than what seems to be coming for lines 17-Gold and 18-Bronze, I'm a bit worried at the thought of line 15-Silver reaching Sâo Mateus.

It will only be the second line to go deep into the Eastern Zone, and it's far enough from line 3-Red and line 11-Coral as to have any effect on the overcrowding of those two lines (on the contrary, since the very second line 5-Lilac reaches Chácara Klabin, the number of passengers will rather likely explode in all lines).

MONORAIL | Line 15-Silver (Vila Prudente-Oratório).

Tests for CBTC are happening on line 15. These tests seem to be also valid for line 5-Lilac.
