Fares raised

Fares on Sao Paulo public transportation were raised from 8,5-10,5%

Approximate value in dollars are:

Single bus ride: US$ 1,76

Single subway/metropolitan rail ride: US$ 1,76 (US$ 1,71 for line 5)

Combined subway-bus ride: US$ 2,57

There are some discounts, up to 10%, for block purchases of single-trip tickets on electronic fare cards. There are no monthly/weekly passes and certain categories of people get discounts on the normal fare (students, elderly etc.)

Farebox recovery rates are expected, once again, to be above 90%, inclusive of all law-mandated discounts.

I expect to get my student card as soon as possible.

This year I'll become a frequent Metro user in Lines 2 and 4 (Vila Prudente -> Paulista-Consolação -> Butantã), with quick bus rides on the two ends of my trip.

That would cost me app. US$5,14 per day without a student card.

Every year the price increases. In 2012 maybe you will want to just do a copy & paste of your post.

Borrowing is a good idea. For metro systems like in Sao Paulo, where coverage is small (relative to city size) and suppressed demand huge meaning passenger growth is theoretically massive if lines are built, i think raising debt (whether loans or bonds) is perhaps the most logical form of funding because of future income.
This trick has already been used to it's full extend by the state of São Paulo. There is a limit in the amount of debt that the state can have in terms of a % of GDP and it is currently in the limit. No more borrowing will be done unless the economy grows quite well. Recently (was it 2009?) there was a large borrowing to up the debt to the new limit after some years of economic growth.

The federal government has never put a cent in the São Paulo Metro. Almost all investment is from the state, with a small contribution from the city.

No, the federal government made some investments (some of them with hundreds of milions), but they are small compared with state investments, and with city investments. But we must remember that first investments came from São Paulo City and the federal government.
