Video hosted by the Sao Paulo Metro Workers Union president on overcrowding, high fees and lack of expansion. There maybe a strike tomorrow (June 1st).

Apparently they do interconnect in the city center indeed, I believe there are maybe a hundred or two hundred such busses in the city but you'd have to ask an expert. Here is a map of the electric bus network:

As far as I know, the routes formerly serving the north area had been deleted. I guess there were some 500 trolleybuses in the 1980s.

Yes that map is old. Some other routes have been suppressed as well.

Today news came out that line 4 will begin full-time operations starting on June 30, 2011, one month from now. But not on weekends still, only from Monday to Friday as now (Mon-Fri 4h40 am to 3pm). Weekend operations are likely to start when República and Luz stations open by October.

Btw today's planned metro strike was cancelled, but some CPTM lines did strike by reducing rolling stock some 10%.

and a pic:

Line 9 2100 series train near Interlagos station by RRC (pic from 2007, when station opened, these trains no longer operate that line)

2100 series in single-unit operation (3 cars consist). Another thing that we'll never see again.
