It should be cooler, but the hot air blown from the A/C's of the passing trains seems to more than make up for it.

Here in Melbourne all metro trains have to be airconditioned, and it does a really good job too, it can be 40 degrees outside but a nice 20-25 inside, its quite a relief after a long day out during summer.

You forgot to mention the Line 5 of the Metrô-SP (mostly elevated), which does have ar conditioning (maybe you mean "underground sections" instead "subway", I guess, because subway refers to the entire system). The other lines (Line 1, Line 2 and Line 3) don't have air conditioning, but the new lines, like Line 5 and Line 4 (under construction), will have air conditioning too. Some photos of Line 5:

Brisbane Australia Trains

Hello

All Brisbane Electric Trains since being introduced in 1979 have been air conditioned. We are still running the first electric trains, the early electric trains have bumpers, but the later in the same series do not.

The heating work very well too, sometimes too hot. They all have double glass windows.

Bye

#2. Brisbane doesn't have a metro.

Yeah, Brunswick St, Brisbane Central are "underground" I believe - which suburban stations are underground?

However, covered stations do not a metro make! Brisbane has a suburban rail system with frequencies of 30 minutes on each line off-peak - not metro standard.

Hello

I know that covered station do not make a metro, but the stations are not underground or open air either, that is all.

Yes stations that a build on top of are:
Central = Hotel, was the Sherton, now Softel. (Buffet Great), orginal Station still on ann street. 6 Platforms

Brunswick Station = Shopping Centre and Car Park. 4 Platforms

the other underground stations are both on the Ipswich Line

Toowong Station = Shopping Centre, Car Park, Office Tower. 4 Platforms

Ipswich Station = Station build on top and a bus station next to it. It has 4 platforms.

Where will the hot air go? Into the stations?

Let's dig out this old thread.

How does the heating/AC standards in the public transport of your cities look like?

In Łódź, Poland we have a very variable climate. The temperatures can range from -10 or even -20 centigrade in winter to 30 or even 40 centigrade in summer. So both hearing and aircon are used - although the vehicles have been equipped with air conditioning for quite a short time. What is more, most vehicles have big openable windows (of course, locked if the vehicle has operational AC) - the lack of which was a big problem when I was travelling by trams in Germany in the summer.

It's interesting that the public transport vehicles in Germany usually have only very narrow, tilting openable windows (even in the vehicles without any aircon), while in Poland, the openable windows are sliding and they are as tall as a half of the whole window height.

The standards in Łódź depend on the specific vehicle, and they are as follows:

BUSES
Solaris Urbino 12/18 (2015, 2011), Mercedes Conecto LF (2014, 2013) - heating: automatic, target temperature set to 18 deg. C; AC: automatic, target temperature set to 24 deg. C
Mercedes Conecto LF (2010), Solaris Urbino 18 (2008), Volvo 7700/7700A (2007), Mercedes Citaro (2007, 2006), Volvo 7000 (2001-2003) - heating: automatic; AC: not present
Mercedes Conecto O345G (2006), Jelcz M121MB (2005-2006), Jelcz M081MB (2006) - heating: activated upon order and at the temperatures outside below 0 deg. C; AC: not present

TRAMS
Pesa 122Na Swing (2015), Pesa 122N Tramicus (2008) - heating: automatic, target temperature set to 18 deg. C; AC: automatic, target temperature set to 24 deg. C
Bombardier Cityrunner (2002), Düwag M8C (imported in 2013) - heating: automatic; AC: not present
Konstal 805Na (1977-1990) - heating: activated upon order and at the temperatures outside below 5 deg. C; AC: not present
Düwag M8C (imported in 2013, modernized from 2013 till now), Düwag GT6, Düwag GT8 - heating: activated upon order and at the temperatures outside below 0 deg. C; AC: not present

The general feeling from my experience is that the buses are generally warmer in winter than the trams. It's cold especially in the Konstal 805Na trams, which constitute for vast majority of the rolling stock - the problem is mostly caused by the doors, which are not really airtight, actually, they have big gaps around. The trams imported from Germany are warmer.
