Brazil trains


Rio de Janeiro had street cars before London, Paris and Malan. The Rio de Janeiro metro began in 1979 with five stations operating on a single line and has expanded to 35 stations operating on two lines. The orange line is completely underground and the green line is mainly above ground.

As Rio de Janeiro is situated in a hilly area and has an uneven landscape it is difficult to travel by motor vehicles or bus. This metro system transports about 1, 1 million passengers daily. The metro system is under plans for more extensive construction.

The São Paulo Metro, which began in 1974 but had its first train trip in 1972, is the largest metro system in Brazil and the second largest in South America. It has 64 stations and 5 rail lines (blue, green, red, yellow and lilac). It operates and transports passengers from 4am every day of the week up to mid night and on Saturdays until 1am.

The São Paulo Metro utilizes tickets and smart cards for passengers to travel on the system. The metro’s security agents have been authorized with police powers and there is a police station, DELPOM (Delegacia de Polícia do Metropolitano de São Paulo), as part of the subway system.
