The outage of a power cable interrupted, since 18:00 on this Wednesday (1st), the circulation of trains between the Brás and Luz stations of the Companhia Paulista de Trens Metropolitanos (CPTM). Lines 7-Ruby and 10-Turquoise have been discontinued.

Line 13 – Jade was not affected by the problem, however, Expresso Aeroporto had to be suspended.

How are the CPTM lines:

  • Traffic on Line 7-Rubi is normal between Barra Funda and Jundiaí;
  • Line 10-Turquoise trains run from Mauá to Tamanduateí, where there is a transfer to Metro Line 2-Green. In this line, the Paese bus system was activated to serve the stretch between the Mauá and Rio Grande da Serra stations;
  • On line 11-Coral, trains run between Students and Tatuapé. Between Tatuapé and Luz, you must take the Metro line 3-Red.
  • Line 12-Sapphire operates normally;
  • Line 13-Jade partially operates, with suspension of the Airport Express.

At the Luz station, in downtown São Paulo, the power was turned off, and passengers had to walk the rails.
