Access to line 4 Luz station from the existing Luz underground section. Line 4 Luz is officially scheduled to open on September 30, but unofficial sources indicate September 02.

Sao Paulo is building two monorail lines. One will have trains from Bombardier and the other will have trains from Scomi. Now, Manaus is also planning to build a monorail line. If the following news blurb is accurate, the trains will be from Scomi.

Scomi Engg bags tender for monorail in Brazil
PTI | 07:08 PM,Aug 05,2011

Mumbai, Aug 5 (PTI) Malaysia-based public transportation solutions provider Scomi Engineering today said it has bagged a tender for supply and implementation of monorail in Brazil for Malaysian Ringgit 646.38 million. "Scomi Engineering has won a second monorail tender to provide design works, manufacture, supply and implementation of the monorail system for the 20km monorail line for the city of Manaus in Brazil," a company statement said. The monorail project was awarded to the consortium comprising Scomi, C R Almeida, Mendes Junior and Serveng for Malaysian Ringgit 2.76 billion. "This award will further strengthen our position for the four upcoming tenders in the next 12 months in Brazil. Our partners in Brazil are the two largest infrastructure companies in South America and we intend to harness this alliance to further our market presence there," Scomi Group Chief Executive Officer Shah Hakim Zain said. The Manaus Monorail will consist of nine stations from Largo da Matriz to Jorge Teixeira and will involve the supply of 10 train sets consisting of six cars in each set, it said. "The monorail project is expected to be completed in 40 months to provide efficient access to the airport, port, stadium, hotels, hospitals and other important locations especially during the 2014 World Cup hosted by Brazil. Once completed the monorail line will be able to carry some 35,000 passengers per hour per direction to meet the expected demand," the statement said. Under the consortium, Scomi will design and supply the rolling stock and depot equipment, design beam structure, supply maintenance vehicle, system integration and project management. In June, the firm along with its consortium partners, Andrade Gutierrez, CR Almeida and Projetos Especiais had secured the Sao Paolo Monorail project in Brazil worth Malaysian Ringgit 2.6 billion. It had also signed a memorandum of understanding with IERS, a subsidiary of IL&FS, to raise funds for its projects in India.

Why does Sao Paulo need a monorail though?

It seems to me that a monorail is more of a tourist attraction than a way of getting around the city

The monorail system will be pushed to its highest capacity, so it can work almost as a regular metro line.
Something similar has already been done in Chongquing, although our monorail will have even more capacity (about 45kpass/h*direction).

I certainly hope theres a rail connection to the airport?

And does the system serve the suburb or just inner city?

Is it integrated with bus system as well? Meaning one fare card for all?

No, though it's to be built soon.

Both.

With the capital, yes. Not in the suburbs.
