I'm from Kolkata. Kolkata metro has much similarities with Rio de Janeiro metro in terms of track gauge & third rail, also with same track gauge with suburban train.

Traffic problem is so worse here. How can they will solve it before the coming World Cup football? Many metro lines are urgently needed. They have destroyed tram almost, but not replaced by metro.

Please try to answer these -
1) What is the target year of opening line 3, 4, 5 & 6?
2) Left side, right side or both side, - which type of platforms are in most numbers in Rio de Janeiro subway network?
3) Elevated, ground level or underground, - which type of stations are in most numbers in Rio de Janeiro subway network?
4) Which are the highest and deepest stations of Rio de Janeiro metro?
5) Which is the busiest metro station?
6) Which stations have interchange facility with suburban rail network?
7) Which stations have interchange facility with tram network?
7) Where is/are the depot(s) of the subway network?

That's nice to see a foreigner really interested in carioca metro.
I hope the traffic problem doesn't approach the level of some cities, like São Paulo, or even Calcutta. But in the rush hour there are lots of ways just blocked with cars and buses.
I think it's the perfect time to regulate the system projects. There are too many buses in the city, it's really a shame.

Check out my blog on my signature, i'm trying to get lots of people to improve Rio metro. In the project there are 290 stations in 11 lines, but you can consider that there is a minor system that should be urgently constructed.
It's in portuguese, but i think it's quite understandable if you translate it.
Or learn brazilian portuguese, it's a beautiful language!

6) Which stations have interchange facility with suburban rail network?
7) Which stations have interchange facility with tram network?
8*) Where is/are the depot(s) of the subway network?
1) There's neither target year nor any planning for the expansion. I really think the government should order some biddings to organize this mess. In this way when the budget comes, everything would be already ready.

2) In Rio there is no pattern for the stations, even the design is really random. I'm a line 1 user and most of them have only right side platforms.
Some important stations have a central platform to get in and lateral platforms to get off, like Carioca and Saens Peña stations.
But i think it's really random, Cinelândia and Central stations for intance have only a central platform.

3) Line 1 is totally underground and Line 2 de facto (Cidade Nova and beyond) is mostly elevated or ground level.

4) I really don't know. Sorry. I think most are in the same level (Line 1 underground and Line 2 over the ground)

5) I think it's Central, Uruguaiana and Carioca stations. Botafogo station is also really busy.

6) Central, São Cristóvão, Triagem, Pavuna stations. The interchange is not free though.
Maria da Graça and Del Castilho neighborhoods have suburban rail (Supervia) stations too. But there's no interchange facility.

Even though there are São Francisco Xavier stations in both systems (metro and Supervia), they are really far apart in distinct neighborhoods (Tijuca and São Francisco Xavier).
The SFX station in Tijuca is because of an important avenue, but it's in the corner with another important street called Heitor Beltrão, that should be the name. But you know, carioca metro is a MESS!

7) There's no tramway in Rio! haha. There's only the Santa Teresa tram. Well, I'm not a Santa Teresa resident, but i think it goes just to the Downtown without any interchange.

8*) If you mean the conservation depot, there's one between Central and Cidade Nova stations. Supervia depot is near of it.

Line 3 will extend into Niteroi, and the route of Line 6 has not yet been finalised?
