"Line 4 to extend operations to normal metro hours (4h40 a.m. to midnight) on June 29, 2011."

Currently the line is operating from 4h40 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Linha 4 expande horários e integração no dia 29

Trecho passa a funcionar das 4h40 à meia-noite, mas operação nos fins de semana começará só no segundo semestre 11 de junho de 2011 | 0h 00 Renato Machado - O Estado de S.Paulo O Metrô vai expandir no dia 29 deste mês o horário de funcionamento da Linha 4-Amarela para o padrão no restante da rede metroviária: das 4h40 à meia-noite. Na mesma data, também será entregue o complemento da integração entre as Estações Pinheiros do Metrô e da Linha 9-Esmeralda (CPTM). Uma integração provisória havia sido entregue na sexta-feira da semana passada, dia 3. Foi inaugurada uma nova passarela, mas a reforma da estação de trem não havia sido totalmente concluída - com a colocação de escadas rolantes, por exemplo. Mesmo assim, a integração já foi responsável por um grande salto na quantidade de passageiros na Linha 4-Amarela. A média de usuários no ramal antes da integração era de 46 mil por dia e agora passou para 67 mil - alta de 45%. A previsão é de que ultrapasse os 240 mil passageiros por dia útil nos próximos meses - a linha vai operar nos fins de semana apenas no segundo semestre. Próximas estações. O próximo passo é a entrega das Estações Luz e República. Previstas para dezembro, agora já se trabalha com a hipótese de setembro. Será então concluída a primeira fase da linha, que terá 12,8 quilômetros e seis estações: Luz, República, Paulista, Faria Lima, Pinheiros e Butantã. A segunda fase deve ser concluída em 2014 com mais cinco estações.

An older version of the plans for line 4. Rio Branco and Brasil stations were eliminated to reduce costs, but the line was extended westward to Butantã Morumbi and Vila Sonia (which had been part of plans in the past). Later, during early construction, Três Poderes station was eliminated as well. The crossing of the Pinheiros river was supposed to be elevated, it was changed to underground to "reduce visual impact".

Preview of Vila Aurora station, under construction in line 7. It is the only CPTM station under construction at the moment (although works seem to be halted momentarily).

Map of current plans for the East Side of Sao Paulo, focusing on the Tiradentes Monorail (or line 2 monorail) and also showing "line 15", the actual extension of line 2 to Penha northward.

A bit of bus history: São Paulo double-decker buses operated in the late 80s/early 90s, but were soon discontinued.



A few were used in the neighboring metropolitan satellite city of Osasco, here is a rare picture:



They were nicknamed fofão ("chubby, fluffy")

In the far south of Sao Paulo city, a ferry boat service crosses Billings reservoir taking a city bus.
