Virada Cultural begins, this Saturday (28), with more than 300 music, performing arts and dance performances in eight regions of São Paulo.
To watch the shows by Ludmilla, Barões da Pisadinha, Glória Groove and others, public transport in the capital of São Paulo must operate in a special scheme.
See below how São Paulo’s subway, train and bus lines will work.
Sao Paulo subway
“The Metro opens normally on Saturday at 4:40 am and works until midnight on Sunday for passenger transfers,” the São Paulo Metropolitan Transport Department said in a note.
The Secretariat explains that, at dawn from Saturday to Sunday (29), São Bento, on Line 1-Blue, and Anhangabaú, on Line 3-Red, will operate uninterruptedly for boarding and disembarking.
The Secretariat points out that access to these stations will be restricted to two entrances: access from Vale, at São Bento station, and access to Formosa, at Anhangabaú station.
The CPTM (Companhia Paulista de Trens Metropolitanos) stations will open normally this weekend, but during the early hours of Sunday (29), they will only be open for disembarkation.
The stations that will have Virada Cultural events nearby – São Miguel Paulista, on Line 12-Sapphire, and José Bonifácio, on Line 11-Coral – will also be open for boarding during this period.
Passenger transfers will be open and free at stations that are integrated with the São Paulo Metro and with lines operated by the ViaQuatro and ViaMobilidade concessionaires – Metrô (Luz, Brás, Tamanduateí, Barra Funda, Tatuapé and Itaquera), ViaQuatro (Luz and Pinheiros) and ViaMobilidade (Santa Cruz).
ViaQuatro and ViaMobilidade
Lines 4-Yellow, 5-Lilac, 8-Diamante and 9-Esmeralda, which are operated by the ViaQuatro and ViaMobilidade concessionaires, despite opening normally during the day, will only work for disembarkation during the night from Saturday to Sunday.
“It is worth noting that the companies will reinforce the staff of security agents, especially in the stations close to the presentations of the event. If there is an increase in demand, more trains will be put into operation”, highlights the Transport Department.
Starting at 4 pm this Saturday (28), SPTrans will implement a special operation for municipal bus lines, which should be in effect until 8 pm on Sunday (29).
“SPTrans teams will monitor the operation of public transport in the central region throughout the event and make adjustments if necessary”, highlighted SPTrans.
