First time I look at SP's rapid transit system. It's good to see that it's being expanded.

Is there a map that is more geographically laid out...to scale? Some cities have both a geographic/to scale and a schematic version. It seems from the map on the first post (the 2nd map on one of the previous posts is very hard to read) that the metro and the suburban trains don't necessary follow a center vs. periphery layout. There are metro lines that seem to serve on the periphery.

I hope you like it.
Here there is an incomplete version. These colors identify which consortium operates the lines:
The codes with 4 digits or 3 digts and a letter identify the lines
The other names identify points in the city, like avenues, streets, subway and railway station (Estação ???), bus terminals (Terminal ???) and some districts


área = region
estação = station
rio = river
ponto final = last stop/point, terminus
corredor = corridor, brt (bus rapid transit)


Wow! Perfect!

Tlag, este thread que você criou é muito bom, mas acho que tem fotos demais nele. Não é para desmerecer o seu trabalho, mas é que ele acaba ficando muito pesado mesmo.

Acho que a retirada de boa parte das fotos, com a colocação de links para álbuns ou fóruns externos ao SSC (como o TGVBR, que tem um tópico para cada estação, ou o railbuss) tornaria esse thread mais atraente e objetivo

Fica aqui registrada a sugestão



Tlag, this thread youve created is very good, but I think there are too many photos. I'm not criticizing your effort, but the thread is too heavy.

I think if you remove some photos, but post links to external albums or forums (like TGVBR, which has a topic for each station, or railbuss), this thread would become more attractive and objective

Here is registred my suggestion

This is a map done by me. It shows 7 bus corridors: 5 municipal (managed by SPTrans) and 2 intermunicipal (managed by EMTU). There are more 4 municipal bus corridors in operation, and 1 intermunicipal one under project, but I don't have a list of their stops.

Corridors shown in this map:
Pirituba-Lapa-Center
Inajar-Rio Branco-Center
Campo Limpo-Rebouças-Center
Santo Amaro-Nove de Julho-Center
Tiradentes Express
São Mateus-Jabaquara (intermunicipal)
Diadema-Brooklin (intermunicipal)


Below I translated Legend's contents:
Integração com Metrô = Integration with subway
Integração com CPTM = Integration with CPTM (commuter rail)

Terminal de Ônibus/Estação de Transferência = Bus Terminal/Transfer Station
Parada = Stop
Parada em construção/projeto = Stop under construction/project

Linhas ciculares centrais = Central circular lines
interliga os terminais Bandeira, Princesa Isabel e Parque Dom Pedro II = it links Bandeira, Princesa Isabel and Parque Dom Pedro II Terminals


Área 1-Noroeste = Area 1-Northwest
Área 2-Norte = Area 2-North
Área 3-Nordeste = Area 3-Northeast
Área 4-Leste = Area 4-East
Área 5-Sudeste = Area 5-Southeast
Área 6-Sul = Area 6-South
Área 7-Sudoeste = Area 7-Southwest
Área 8-Oeste = Area 8-West
Área 9-Centro = Area 9-Center

Trecho em operação = Section in operation
Trecho em construção/projeto = Section under construction/project

Adding:
Little names in italic are street's names

I Agree. I think this thread deserve more attention since it seems much more comprehensive than others in SSC about São Paulo Metro, IMO.

Only missing the line 2, 3, 4 and 5

Don't worry, they're coming.
Line 4 only in 2009/2010


What do you people think about this thread ?? (a little research for further threads)

Should it have less pictures ? More pictures ? (I used 6/7 pictures for each station)
More history ? (text and pictures)
More information about the stations ?
More information about the districts ?
More videos ?

Congrats, very good pictures of Sao Paulo Metro!

The trains & the stations look rather similar to those of the BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit System) in the San Francisco-Oakland area in the US.

The only big differances are that the interior of the Sao Paulo trains look much more utilitarian & BART has very few (if any) stations with curving tracks.

I believe that Line 1 trains were based in BART system, probably they used the same project from Budd Company

That makes sense, as they were built around the same time, BART opened around 1972, & was state-of-the art at that time, although certainly not today.

Has Sao Paulo been expanding its metro? If so that's good, for a long time it just had a few lines, not really adequete for such a huge city.

The expansion is going on, but unfortunately it is slow.
Today we have 61km of Metrô and 257km of CPTM (Metropolitan trains), but much of CPTM lines could be considered as Metro (like line 11 and line 9)

"Soon"* we're going to inaugurate line 4, and line 2 and 5 extensions

*from 2010 to 2014
