Two completely separate elevated stations: Imigrantes (east of line 2) and Carandiru (north of line 1). Great to take a look at the city in general!

CPTM trains ariving at Tatuapé Station (East of Line 3) - Tatuapé station serves three lines, all parallel (one of them splits northeast later) - The two trains seen are Line 12 (blue train) and Line 11 (red train).

Another very cool video of Line 5, which serves some of Sao Paulo's poorest areas. These are Giovanni Gronchi and Vila das Belezas stations, both elevated. You can see the stark social contrast found in Brazil.

Ridership of the Metro-CPTM systems is around 5,5 million people/day, due to increase to 7,5 million by 2011, especially with the all-new Line 4. It is heavily congested in the central sections, especially lines 1 and 3.
