Tomorrow (Thursday, 9/15), Luz and Republica metro stations will be finally connected to the 4-Yellow Line

The 4-Yellow Line brings information in English. Not every metro line offers this option
At the very beginning, these two brand-new stations will operate from 10 am to 3 pm, Monday to Saturday, including holidays. The Metro Department estimates that around 100 thousand passengers daily will be accessing the República station, and 132 thousand passengers will pass through the Luz station.

Metro expects an equalization in the access of Paraíso and Sé stations.

Next step
Now the next challenge of the Yellow Line is the construction of a tunnel 1 km long, connecting to the Vila Sonia station in the west region (under construction). Beyond that, there are also the project-ending of the installation of operating systems at the stations: São Paulo-Morumbi, Fradique Coutinho, Oscar Freire and Higienópolis-Mackenzie.

The route between Luz and Vila Sonia will have 12.8 kilometers passing through 11 stations. It is expected that the remaining works will be ended in 2014. From 2012, Line 4-Yellow must already carry about 700 000 people per day.
