  Marginal Tiete during rush hour
by Elainehead

Traffic is a real b**** here, so allow plenty of time for your trip whether you're taking the bus, taxi, subway or car. Things get worse when it rains and/or during rush hours.

Coach travel: I was on a coach and it took us one hour just to go from Tiete Bus Terminal to Dutra highway exit. A simple one-hour and half trip took almost 3 hours! Luckily we were prepared and had food and water with us, and no commitment in our destination.

Subway: We were at Liberdade station and had to wait 4 times to manage to get inside a wagon because it was so crowded! A little tip, the first wagons are usually less crowded.
