BRAZIL: Sao Paulo Metro Line 13, connecting the city to the Airport, will start daily test operations between 10am and 3pm from 30th of April. The line has been running on assisted operations schedule on Saturdays and Sundays only since the 31st of March.

During the four test weekends the CPTM Line 13 Jade carried almost 120 thousand people, most of them using it as a tour to learn about the route and its integration with Guarulhos International Airport (GRU Airport).

The company is looking to complete all the tests in May and make the necessary adjustments for the beginning of the commercial operations scheduled for June, when the trains will run from 4am to midnight.

Line 13 Jade is the first rail link with the Guarulhos region and a new transport connection to access the international airport.

With a total of 12.2 km, Line 13-Jade has three stations: Aeroporto-Guarulhos, Guarulhos-Cecap (new) and Engineer Goulart (rebuilt), which integrates with Line 12-Sapira (Brás-Calmon Viana), in the city of São Paulo.
