Thanks for comment Songoten2554! The Tietê terminal passed recently for reforms, and now has new stores, new illumination, and is safer. And it's totally integrated with the subway system!

Looks cool.
We don't have such big bus stations in Switzerland
Buses are only used for short distances.

Tiete is like Zürich Hauptbahnhof, I can tell you There are ten- if not hundredthousands passing through every day. It actually IS a train station for Brazil doesn't have passenger trains anymore (some touristic lines as Sao Paulo-Rio, Curitiba-Paranagua, or Sao Jose das Reis-Tiradentes stil exist though or city trains like our S-Bahn), travellers for near and far board on a local "Rodoviario" (from Rodovia - Motorway). THESE are the trainstations in Brazil and similar big.

There are several postive aspects (though I as a Swiss are more a train fanatic and I wish Brazil will rediscover trains again - but there is good hope at the moment):
- The prices are quite cheap
- There are several companies for several lines travelling from the same station. That means you don't necessarily have to go from Santos to Sao Paulo and then then to Belo Horizonte to travel to Ouro Preto - there will be probaly a line that wil make that directly.
- The comfort in most busses (at least in the south and southwest) is supperior to our "Postautos" or city busses. It's like travelling in an airplane with movies and movable chairs.
- Some trips take several days with the same bus - if you are afraid to fly or want to see more of the landscape and have time: it's a good option
- They stop every few hours on motorway restaurants where you normally eat very good for a cheap price
- You can even travel abroad. I think Sao Paulo-Santiago is some 72 hours (though too much for me ) but much cheaper than by plane - for airplane tickets for abroad are priced in $ - which make them unaffordable for a lot of Brazilians.

I was convinced by the system at least

I can clearly see the advantages.
I used a similiar bus in Canada to travel between Montreal and Toronto and I really liked it, the comfort is indeed not comparable to our "Postautos"
What surprises me though, is that it's cheaper than a flight for such long distances (Sao Paulo-Santiago).

For some reason bus systems in Latin America are really first world quality. Majority of the main bus terminals resemble airports. Anyway those are some nice pictures.

It's because all the international flights are prized in US$ and the Brazilian Real is based on the $ (has even the same symbol). Inflation could be stopped but the currency is still not the strongest and very dependent on the movements of the US$. Domestic flights are quite cheap but the same distance across the border can cost a lot more.

Brazil Subway Probe Focuses on Builders

Brazil Subway Probe Focuses on Builders
By STAN LEHMAN
17 January 2007

SAO PAULO, Brazil (AP) - Prosecutors said Wednesday they suspect mistakes by private builders, rather than heavy rains, caused the collapse of a subway station construction site that buried at least seven people.

Authorities also warned they may halt work on the station, part of a $1.4 billion subway line being built in South America's largest city, as they investigate what caused last Friday's collapse that killed three people and left four others missing and presumed dead.

"A serious mistake was made, and what we have to do now is determine if it was in the planning or in its execution," Sao Paulo state Attorney General Rodrigo Pinho said.

Part of a 130-foot-wide circular hole lined with concrete gave way without warning, swallowing pedestrians, a minibus driving by the site, and dump trucks being used in the project. Several nearby homes were damaged and must now be torn down.

Pinho said the consortium's suggestion that rain was a leading cause was "ridiculous." Sao Paulo typically experiences heavy rain from November through April and all construction companies factor that into their building plans.

The Via Amarela Consortium building the subway line declined to comment on Pinho's statements, saying "our main concern now is to attend to the families of the victims and to those who have lost their homes." The company previously issued a statement denying negligence.

Earlier Wednesday, rescue crews recovered the body of truck driver Franciso Sabino Torres, bringing to three the number of dead retrieved from the crater-like hole left after the collapse.

Authorities were still trying to recover the bodies of four more people thought buried under tons of rubble and debris, three of them believed to be in the entombed minibus.

New and Modern Subway Station in São Paulo - Brazil

Metro has inaugurated on June 30, 2007 the Alto do Ipiranga Station of Line 2- Green. The station is located in the corner of Avenida Doutor Gentil de Moura with Rua Visconde de Pirajá, in the Ipiranga neighborhood.

The expansion works of Line 2 - Green between Ana Rosa and Alto do Ipiranga stations, a section of 3.4 kilometers, started on March 31, 2004 in the corner of Rua Vergueiro and Carlos Petit, in the Vila Mariana neighborhood. Two years later, the Imigrantes (04/15/2006) and Chácara Klabin (05/09/2006) stations have been delivered. The Alto do Ipiranga station was built in the record time of 22 months (the works were started in August 2005). In this section, the State Government invested R$ 954 million.

The next stage of the expansion of Line 2 - Green, with 4.3 kilometers of underground/elevated ways and three stations (Sacomã, Tamanduateí and Vila Prudente), foreseen to be concluded in 2010, is already in progress and the State Government will invest R$ 1.9 billion, including the purchase of 16 new trains.

The Alto do Ipiranga Station is the first one built with a new architectural conception. This model allowed Metro to save resources in the explorations of areas of its building, besides keeping the functionality. The forecast is that it will have 40 thousand entries per day, it has two accesses that allow to reach the station body and the embarkment platforms, which are 25 meters under the street level.

The stations counts on shielded ticket offices, tactile floor, two special elevators, seven staircases and ten escalators, five upwards and five downwards, which can be inverted according to the operating requirements. These escalators are "smart" and operate with reduced speed when there are no users in it, in order to save energy.

The main body of the station is covered by a glass dome with diameter of 18 meters and height of 9 meters. The installation of this special glass cover allows natural lighting and ventilation, making possible savings of 50% in the costs of implementation and maintenance of the ventilation system, besides being an expressive architectural element. The last floor level before the platforms is a mezzanine for distribution in metallic frame with steel deck slab, made of a metallic plate incorporated to the concrete structure. In the Alto do Ipiranga station, this structure is supported by 44 trussed beams in the upper part of the station body. The steel deck allows the access to the embarkment platforms.

All of this frame is treated with a special painting that protects it from the fire action for an approximate time of 90 minutes. The paint used in the painting is intumescent and, under the fire action, is transformed into a dense foam that due to an increase of thickness, protects the structure and provide safety to the users. In its inside portion, Alto do Ipiranga station follows the color patterns of the Brazilian flag (green, yellow, blue and white) in honor to the Ipiranga neighborhood, the cradle of our independence.

Alto do Ipiranga Station, claimed for more than 20 years by the centennial neighborhood of Ipiranga, will also serve an important student center, such as São Marcos University, Nossa Senhora Assunção Pontificial College of Theology, São Camilo University Center, Assunção-UNIFAI University Center and the Language Studies Center of E.E. Alexandre de Gusmão. The neighborhood also has a traditional cultural pole, which includes Monument and the Museum of Ipiranga, with the attached French Garden.

Line 2 - Green of Metro transports daily 340 thousand passengers between Imigrantes and Vila Madalena stations. With the operation of the Alto do Ipiranga Station, the daily demand will achieve 380 thousand passengers.

The forecast is that in 2010, with the full operation of Line 2 - Green between Vila Madalena and Vila Prudente, connected in the Tamanduateí Station with Line "D" of Companhia Paulista de Trens Metropolitanos - CPTM and in the Sacomã Station with Expresso Tiradentes, the daily demand of the line reaches 800 thousand people.

Alto do Ipiranga Station:

It is the deepest station of the section. The ticket office hall, the fareboxes and the operating rooms are located at the street level, with natural lighting and ventilation. A central shaft with diameter of 32 m allows the access to both platforms.

The unleveling of 24.16 m between the hall and the platforms is covered in two stages: the first comprised of staircases that reach the transfer platform and the second that foresees sets of staircases, escalators and elevators.

The station architecture is modern and very functional, with emphasis to the ceiling glass vault for entry of sunlight, in addition to the special access to physically disabled people.

The station can be accessed by Avenida Dr. Gentil de Moura and by Rua Visconde de Pirajá.
