Line 17 monorail (Jabaquara-Morumbi) finally approved for construction after a local wealthy neighborhood "NIMBY" movement had filed a lawsuit to halt the project due to "environmental concerns".

Curious "render" of a defunct plan from the 50s in which a surface metro would be built along what is now 23 de Maio Avenue (called originally Anhangabaú Avenue). Many viaducts still in existence over this valley-buttom freeway avenue still feature structures that were meant to be stations


(dug out by Eduardo GJF)

The avenue today with its never built "stations"

thanks for sharing those pics from "Anhangabau Av." mopc!! I've always wondered what those structures were, and why they were built ...

I guess they thought that building the metro on Jabaquara/Vergueiro avenues would be better (line 1) ...

Note the single set of doors on each side of the cars in the second image. The image is recycled from a Bombardier proposal for Seattle.

The first one is from the actual proposal for São Paulo, the second is just an illustration.
