Companhia Paulista de Trens Metropolitanos
(short form: CPTM, pronunciation: seh-peh-teh-eh-meh) (English: São Paulo Metropolitan Train Company) is a regional rail company owned by the Secretaria de Estado dos Transportes Metropolitanos (STM) (English: State Secretariat for Metropolitan Transports). Created in 1992 from railroads that already existed in Greater São Paulo.
The CPTM has 88 stations with six lines, numbered starting on 7 (the lines 1 to 6 belong to the São Paulo Metro system), with a total length of 261.8 Km:History

The São Paulo Railway (SPR) in 1867 and later in 1946 Estrada de Ferro Santos-Jundiaí (EFSJ, pronunciation: eh-ehf-ehs-zheh) already operated where lines 7 and 10 are today. Estrada de Ferro do Norte in 1875 and later in 1890 Estrada de Ferro Central do Brasil (EFCB) operated on what is now line 11. Current line 12 was operated by EFCB too, from 1926. These had been congregated in 1957 to other Brazilian railroads and thus, the Rede Ferroviária Federal (RFFSA, pronunciation: ehr-ehf-ehf-ehsh-a) was created. The urban sections of the RFFSA had originated from Companhia Brasileira de Trens Urbanos(CBTU) in 1984; the Paulista section of the CBTU joined and formed CPTM in 1992.
On the other hand, Estrada de Ferro Sorocabana (EFS) operated in 1875 on current line 8. What is now line 9 was opened by EFS in 1957 ; it was incorporated into other railway companies of the State and formed into Ferrovia Paulista (FEPASA) in 1971. The subdivision, FEPASA DRM, of rapid-transit, was incorporated the CPTM in 1996.
Currently, the Company works in the improvement of the connection in the three stations of the Brás, Luz and Barra Funda. It is the call project Integration Center. The station Júlio Prestes, a current terminal of line 8, will be deactivated, to give place to a cultural complex. Line 8 will pass only to the stations of Luz and Brás.




The São Paulo Metro
(Portuguese: Metropolitano de São Paulo, commonly called Metro) is the city of São Paulo's rapid transit system. The first of such systems in Brazil, it began operations in 1974. Although São Paulo is one of the largest cities in the world, with a population of 19 million (11 million city proper), its metro system is relatively small (61,3 kilometers of track) when compared to its European or North American counterparts.
It consists of four color-coded lines: Line 1-Blue, Line 2-Green, Line 3-Red and Line 5-Lilac; Line 4-Yellow is currently under construction and is due to start operating in late 2009. The metro system carries 3,200,000 passengers a day. Metro itself is far from covering the entire urban area in the city of São Paulo. Another company, Companhia Paulista de Trens Metropolitanos (CPTM), works along the metro system and runs railways converted into light rail service lines, which total six lines (7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12), 261,8 km long, serving 88 stations. Metro and CPTM are integrated through various stations. Metro and CPTM both operate as State-owned companies, and have received awards in the recent past as one of the cleanest systems in the world by ISO9001.
The first line, Norte-Sul (North-South), later renamed the "blue line" or Line 1 – Blue, was opened in September 18, 1972, with an experimental operation between Saúde and Jabaquara stations. Commercial operations started on September 14, 1974, after an eight-year "gestation" period that began in 1966, under mayor Faria Lima's administration.
Expansion of the metro system includes new lines. As of late 2004, construction began on a US$ 1 billion, 12.8 km all-underground line (Line 4 – Yellow), with eleven stations, aimed at transporting almost one million people per day. By 2004, line 2 was also being expanded, with two new stations open in 2006 and another one in 2007.
An 11.4 km expansion of the Line 5 and construction of a 28 km airport express line are in the pipeline as well. The plans also include updating the CPTM heavy rail system, which will add several million passengers capacity into the system. It is expected that the São Paulo Metro and CPTM systems will carry about 7 million people on average week days by 2014, as opposed to today's 5 million (Metro: 3.2 million; CPTM: 1.8 million as of 2008).
Metro stations operate from 4:40 a.m. to around 12:00 a.m. As of 2008, tickets cost R$2.40 (about US$1.45). Integrated tickets which may be used on city buses are also available, and cost R$4.00 (about US$2.40). In 2006, the São Paulo Metro system has started to use an electronic ticket, called "Bilhete Único" (or "Single Ticket" in English). With this ticket, used as a rechargeable smart card, a passenger can take up to 3 buses and 1 metro or suburban train within 2 hours paying only R$3.50, or 4 buses and pay R$2.30.
Current Operational Data
Its current extension does not cover all areas of the city, however, the network of subway, with four lines and one under construction, is complemented by a network of metropolitan trains of 261,8 km, divided into six lines operated by CPTM, which serve the capital and other cities in the Greater São Paulo, extending up to Jundiaí.
The São Paulo Metro has today 61.3 kilometers long in four lines and 55 stations. The system is integrated to the Metropolitan Companhia Paulista de Trains in stations Brás, Palmeiras - Barra Funda, Tatuapé, Corinthians - Itaquera, Luz and Santo Amaro. It is still with Terminal Road at stations Jabaquara, Portuguese-Tietê and Palmeiras - Barra Funda.
Daily, the Metro carries about three million passengers on average, and two million entry in the system and the remainder of free integrations with CPTM and paid with the municipal bus system.

Conversion of metropolitan lines for Surface Metro.
This project of conversion of lines to metro arose due to the high demand of passengers who use the metropolitan lines of CPTM and the need to recover the old stations. Currently, the interval between trains goes up to thirty minutes on weekends, and yet there are old nineteenth century stations that were never modernized. With the extreme need to recover stations, it appeared that the plan of conversion, which is nothing but the modernization of the stations, purchase of new trains and reduction of headway to less than three minutes, as international standards.
Between the end of the 1990s and the early 2000s, with this project of refurbishing the CPTM lines, inherited from the RFFSA, Federal Railway Network and Fepasa (former São Paulo State Railways), the conversion of some metropolitan lines to the Metro standard began. This experience started in Line E, in the stretch known as "Eastern Express", serving Eastern São Paulo and running parallel to Line 3-Red. The stretch completed (to Guaianases station) today has new and modern trains and stations with a new route in the final part. The next stretch to be built, between the station Guaianases, in the Capital, and Estudantes in Mogi das Cruzes, also covering the cities of Ferraz de Vasconcelos, Suzano and Poá, is estimated to have its works resumed in 2007, but this was again postponed, now to 2008.
Currently, the Esmeralda Line (formerly Line C) is the only CPTM line to have been converted to full Metro, and is managed by a joint venture between CPTM and Metro.

The city of Sao Paulo, has its fleet currently consists of 15000 vehicles, the largest fleet of collectives in the world. The main roads in the city have exclusive bus lanes in the fleet. In 2006 the SPtrans (company responsible for transporting the city) recorded 2661110194 passengers per year. In the same year the number of lines was 980.
The city has 28 bus terminals and many models of cars.
Some photos.

There are a map showing the bus terminals of the city, and the division by region and its colors:
1 - Northwest (Light green)
2 - North (Blue)
3 - Northeast (Yellow)
4 - East (Red)
5 - Southeast (Dark green)
6 - South (Sky blue)
7 - Southwest (Wine/dark red)
8 - West (Orange)
9 - Center (Gray)

Region 1 to 8 have a consortium that serves the respective region.
Region 9 is served by all the consortiums



But I drew one indicating two of these bus corridor.
There are ten in SP:

Pirituba-Lapa-Centro
Inajar-Rio Branco-Centro
Campo Limpo-Rebouças-Centro
Santo Amaro-Nove de Julho-Centro
Itapecerica-João Dias-Santo Amaro
Capelinha-Ibirapuera-Santa Cruz
Jardim Ângela-Guarapiranga-Santo Amaro
Parelheiros-Rio Bonito-Santo Amaro
Paes de Barros
Expresso Tiradentes (Tiradentes Express)

In greater SP, there is another one, called "São Mateus-Jabaquara". It links Terminal São Mateus, in SP, to Terminal Jabaquara, in SP too, where there is a connection with subway (Line 1/blue - station Jabaquara), passing throught three cities: Diadema, São Bernardo do Campo and Santo André. The last one has connection with line D of CPTM (station Prefeito Celso Daniel-Santo André)

I don't know very well, but I heard that some lines have more than 30 km from one terminus to another

I believe that the distance between the eastern and western point is nearly 50 km, and between the nothest and southest ones is nearly 100 km.

SP is very long to south.

One example is line 309T/10 (Cidade Tiradentes - Terminal Princesa Isabel). The distance between Cidade Tiradentes (eastern SP) and Terminal Princesa Isabel (center) is so big that one travel can take more than two hours in rush time. This line has more than 30 km.

To improve the journey, a semi-express line was created:
309T/42 (Cidade Tiradentes - Terminal Parque Dom Pedro II)
This line has only two stops, one at Shopping Aricanduva, and another at a subway station (Tatuapé).
Journey' time is below one hour and a half, but I don't know how much it is.

But the real solution for this city is a big subway system, covering all regions.

I'm drawing a map showing the main bus lines.
In this first phase, lines that links bus terminal, subway station and some important points in the city will be drawn. After, other important lines will be added, and specific map for city center and for nightly lines will be drawn too.

I hope you like it.
Here there is an incomplete version. These colors identify which consortium operates the lines:

The codes with 4 digits or 3 digts and a letter identify the lines
The other names identify points in the city, like avenues, streets, subway and railway station (Estação ???), bus terminals (Terminal ???) and some districts


área = region
estação = station
rio = river
ponto final = last stop/point, terminus
corredor = corridor, brt (bus rapid transit)

nice picture... hope to see the final version soon
i know it's hard to draw all the lines and make them look good on a city of this size... just take it slowly and be patient

W-E 50km and N-S 100km... omg... my city is for example W-E around 20km and N-S 10km... lol how small are we

First time I look at SP's rapid transit system. It's good to see that it's being expanded.

Is there a map that is more geographically laid out...to scale? Some cities have both a geographic/to scale and a schematic version. It seems from the map on the first post (the 2nd map on one of the previous posts is very hard to read) that the metro and the suburban trains don't necessary follow a center vs. periphery layout. There are metro lines that seem to serve on the periphery.
