São Paulo’s dynamic and active population means an enormous number of daily journeys are made using urban transport, and the current system is unable to meet the needs of its commuters. Some of the city’s metro lines are so crowded that at times there are up to 9 passengers per m².
This situation is compounded by the current success of the Brazilian economy and the establishment of fare integration policies between the various modes of public transport.
As a result, the Brazilian government has set up an investment plan of 5,000 million Euros for the São Paulo metro, in order to increase transport capacity for lines 1, 2 and 3, and to begin operating two new lines, 4 and 6, while extending lines 2 and 5.
Ineco will be responsible for modernising the São Paulo CPTM metro lines, providing Project Management services and technical support.
