Thanks to all for maps. Now so many more systems to explore ... I'll have to increase my travel budget.

107 trains were bought, 12 four-car-trains are running on line 9 and 8 eight-car-trains will arrive from March 2010, 5 six-car-trains has just arrived and are running on line 2, which will receive more 11 trains this year. Lines 7 and 12 will receive, each one, 20 eight-car-trains from CAF in 2010. Lines 1 and 3 will receive 17 six-car-trains (also from CAF), and their 98 trains are being completely refurbished by T'Trans, Alstom and Bombardier. 7 eight-car-trains and 20 six-car-trains were completely refurbished, and are now operating on lines 11 (Guaianazes - Estudantes section) and 12. These are the confirmed ones.

About the plans, 9 trains will be built for line 11, and 24 trains for line 8. 12 trains will be revamped for this last one.

Line 15, 16 and 17 are light rail, and almost all of them will be elevated. Line 16 will follow a bus corridor, for example.

Lines 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12 already exist. A dream line, I think, is line 14 (Airport Express: Luz - Guarulhos International Airport), which has many troubles in its project.




Actually, as I live in São Paulo, I must to provide information about what are being done here, and what is being changed. To do nothing in the last 40 years doesn't mean we can't do it in just 5 years. This is a very short period, I know. You believing or not, I hope we will complete a large quantity of what I've just said here.

Finishing, what's the purpose of being so ambitious? We must be ambitious, or we will be just a small network for next 40 years, a kind of joke if compared to other systems.

If you want to know more about these plans, please visit: http://www.planodeexpansaosp.com.br (in portuguese only, but try it anyway )

I am late to replay - much work and a one month travel to SE-Asia.

Even I don't live in S.P. or had it visited ever, I am some familar because I follow the planning and construction works there since nearly 40 years. By that I can judge the situation by some way.

Brasilian officials (unfortuately) thinking in administration terms of 4 years only. If one Governor is in favour of expanding the metro - he can do it in 4 years as Orestes Quércia shows it with the Paulista line. but the years before and after were caused by slow progress - or complied interruptions!

I know that S.P. Metro is one of the most busiest of the world and I wrote some reports on it for magazines. But as of present situation I don't see, from where the billions of $US should come to build these extensions.

and also it makes not a bigger net, to give a existing commuter line the number of a metro and some new trains! (as done with these up of no. 7!)

Another problem is the capacity of exisiting commuter lines (partly after merger to Metro do S.P. now metro lines) -special in the central part and Luz station. only 4 tracks can't handle the traffic of several lines to pass through.
the lines can do it but not the passenger-movements! see here also Paris.

You need in this relation 2 more tracks and a new station with separate platforms for in- and out (like metro at Sé)

S.P. was good advised by German Consultants over 40 years ago to build the main stations and intersections with separate platforms for in- and outgoing.
only by this you can handle the present movements at Sé station and others like Barra Funda or Brás.

As I wrote I will let me surprise what will come til 2014 - but don't think it will be the net you showed. To often I saw a big ground-breaking ceremony following by a slow construction or stop of the works.

On line 4 I have information that is should be in service since several years if they would go ahead as planned. But they talked about the project for nearly 10 years with no construction start.

very good, but I've seem many of the maps before on Urbanrail.net or elsewhere.

And the list is far from complete.

Interesting sight, however, it is far from comprehensive and seems to make no distinction between system maps that are conceptual/planned and in operation. Two examples that come from a glance are Lima and Brasilia, both of which are shown with completed systems that are not operational - or in Lima's case even under construction. Also, some maps seem to incorporate buses and trams, while others do not, for example Helsinki has a great tram network, but only the metro is shown.

With that said though, it is cool to see the network pics that are put onto the city maps as compared to the usual line representations.

Strange to see a metro&bus map for Lausanne, but only the metro map for Copenhagen (the S-Tog system should be added here). And where are Hamburg, Munich, Nuremberg, Torino, Roma, Milano?

So are you, but you don't hear me complain

Anyway, nice initiative to put all - more or less - official metro maps of the world on one site.

Over 50% of Kobe is mountainous and undeveloped. The developed part is (relatively speaking) a thin sliver of land along the coast. Kobe, like many Japanese cities, already has comprehensive rail transport (both public and private) that operate at frequencies and have capacities typically seen only on metro systems. They are denoted on the map with gray lines.
