It seems that Sao Paulo does not really have a conventional metro, but a series of suburban lines that have been converted to metro-like frequencies. I know that there is officially a separate suburban service and metro service, but I don't see much difference between the metro lines and high-frequency suburban lines.

The map, the trains, the station lay outs, and the tracks look dramatically different then, say, Buenos Aires or Santiago. These 2 cities have separate suburban and urban rail systems.

Is this true, or am I mistaken?

you are mistaken. Take a look at some other pages of this thread, you will see that at least lines 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 are "conventional metro", being partly underground (lines 1, 2 and 4 being mostly or entirely underground) following every single standard used to define "full metro" serving the city's dense inner core.

Lines from 6 to 12 (the CPTM system) are indeed converted railroads resembling "commuter trains" but offering headway-based frequent service like a metro, but serving the outer metropolitan areas outside the city's dense core, with some exceptions (especially line 9, which serves the West and South dense areas). But all CPTM lines are superficial except a minor part of line 11.

Originally the two systems were VERY different. What is now the CPTM system was a low quality suburban rail service operated by different companies, without standardization, no electronic ticketing or free transfer to the Metro (CMSP). But by the late 90's the CPTM system started receiving massive investments to bring it as close as possible to the high standards of the Metro system, which was established in the 70's as a high-quality urban service.

Now they are still very different but far less than in the past, causing CPTM to have about 5 times more passengers per day than it had in the early 90s, due to much higher standards of service, more stations, modernized stations and more and better trains.

Official PDF release of the latest plans for line 6. The biggest change was the cancellation of Anngelica station, which will be moved westward and be called Pacaembu-FAAP
