The Government of the State of São Paulo published, in an edition of the Official Gazette this Saturday (21), the regulation of the law that resumes the gratuity for seniors aged 60 to 65 in the Metro, CPTM and EMTU (responsible for intercity buses).
According to the state government, beneficiaries’ access to metropolitan public transport will be through an electronic ticket for personal use and non-transferable.
Metrô, Companhia de Trens Metropolitanos (CPTM) and Empresa Metropolitana de Transportes Urbanos de São Paulo (EMTU) have up to 15 days to implement the functionalities of the electronic ticketing system.
Last December, the São Paulo City Hall also resumed free municipal public transport buses for seniors between 60 and 64 years old.
Passengers must present, for this, a document proving their age. “It will be accepted on buses while the electronic ticketing systems are being prepared to serve these passengers”, explained the city hall at the time.
