Another chapter of the history of human transportation is advancing further! The first pillars of what is planned to become the world's largest monorail system are coming to life:

mopc,

I've searched the Thread but didn't found this, do you have a map of the Horizonte 2025 in scale? Like, instead of just putting the lines into a blank background, all lines are in scale and with the correct 'format'?

I remember seeing it at Metro's website but I didn't found it anymore. It's a really great map, in which you can actually see where each station will be.


Nice thread btw, definitely one of the bests of the whole forum.

I remember the cheapest way to go to city center from Guaruhos airport is to first take a bus to Tatuape and then change metro......

Yes, in future you can take a train and go to sao paulo city center in about 20 minutes in a confortable and climatizated train.
