Luz Station-São Paulo

Luz station was builded in 19th century(1895-1901).There where the stop for the trains for or from Santos port and Jundiaí(coffe region city).
Nowdays you can find in the same place a subway station and the Museum of Portuguese language.
Thank you.

For now it's operating from Monday to Friday from 9am to 3pm. Only two stations are open: Paulista and Faria Lima. They say by September they will start full-time operations, from 4am to 12pm everyday, and by that time at least one more station might open (Butantã). Then would come Pinheiros and by December or early 2011, República, then at last Luz.

Since Republica and Luz are the most important due to their connections with other lines, this line will remain a pale shadow of its potential until early/mid 2011 (very disappointing, when construction started in 2004, they said all these stations would be operational by late 2008).

Then after Luz, "Phase II" would kick in, opening all the intermediate stations and the two final stations, Morumbi and Vila Sonia (Vila Sonia will require further tunneling and work has not started yet). They say the first Phase II stations will open by 2012 but 2014 is the final deadline.
