People conveyor belt between Consolação and Paulista stations (lines 2 and 4 transfer)



This is the only transfer where each station has its own separate name, linked by this huge corridor. Paulista station will open in a few days for trial operations.

As the forumer said above, sometime in April, although there are many delays and some people speculate it might be May, but only two stations will open now, the remaining 9 will open later:

Republica, Luz, Pinheiros, Butantã will open later this year, closing phase I.

Phase II stations were always slated to open at least two years after phase I is complete, which means stations Higienopolis, Oscar Freire, Fradique Coutinho and Morumbi will open by 2012 or later.
