Smaller version:



This picture must be from 2005 before the bridge was under construction and before the 2006 anti-billboard law.

The converted railroads (run by CPTM) have frequencies as low as 5 or 6 minutes during the day (Mo-Fr) to 8-10 minutes early morning and late night, 10-15 minutes on Saturdays and 15-20 minutes on Sundays and holidays.

Current purchases of trainsets and upgrades in systems plan to reduce minimum interval to at least 4 minutes during rush hour in the busiest lines.

The Metro lines run by CMSP (lines from 1 to 5) have much shorter intervals, as low as 1 minute during rush hour and an average of 2,5 minutes during the week, 5 minutes during the weekend.



You can check detailed info on CPTM line intervals and other technicalities here at their website:

Rush Hours:

Line 07 - 07 minutes (Luz - Francisco Morato), 11 minutes (Francisco Morato - Jundiaí)
Line 08 - 07 minutes
Line 09 - 06 minutes (Osasco - Grajaú), 03 minutes (Pinheiros - Jurubatuba)
Line 10 - 07 minutes
Line 11 - 05 minutes (Luz - Guaianazes), 08 minutes (Guaianazes - Estudantes)
Line 12 - 06 minutes

Rest of the day, depending on the time:

Line 07 - 10 to 12 minutes (Luz - Francisco Morato), 14 minutes (Francisco Morato - Jundiaí)
Line 08 - 14 minutes
Line 09 - 10 minutes (Osasco - Grajaú)
Line 10 - 10 to 15 minutes
Line 11 - 08 to 10 minutes (Luz - Guaianazes), 09 to 11 minutes (Guaianazes - Estudantes)
Line 12 - 10 to 12 minutes

Maximum frequency, on sunday nights:

Line 07 - 20 minutes (Luz - Francisco Morato), 20 minutes (Francisco Morato - Jundiaí)
Line 08 - 20 minutes
Line 09 - 10 minutes (Osasco - Grajaú)
Line 10 - 20 minutes
Line 11 - 12 minutes (Luz - Guaianazes), 15 minutes (Guaianazes - Estudantes)
Line 12 - 20 minutes

When there are some scheduled maintence on the tracks, frequency can go up to 40 minutes in some lines - like Line 12, where the works have to be deeper since the tracks didn't recieve enough attention for decades!

Also, in Lines 11 (Luz-Guaianzes, the Eastern Express) and 12, during the most severe crowding moments in rush hours, the frequency is forced down to 3 minutes for a while.

Line 9 has an interesting strategy during rush hours, there are trains making an "internal loop" from Pinheiros to Jurubatuba, most crowded part of the line. This way, the frequency in this part is 3 minutes, and in the rest, 6 minutes.

No they wont, the new trains will coexist with the old ones but the old ones will be renovated, fitted with a new front and an interior much like that of the new trains.
