The CPTM and the São Paulo Metro also provide structure to public transport users on rails that travel by bicycle through the Metropolitan Region of the city of São Paulo. Vacancies on bicycle stands and spaces for bikes on wagons make travel safe and comfortable.
The São Paulo subway system encourages transportation by bicycle as a complement to mass transportation and offers about 600 parking spots for bicycle and paracycle vehicles in the stations of the system where there are demands.
In addition to the bicicletários in Sé, Carrão, Guilhermina-Esperança and Corinthians-Itaquera, there are paracycles in another 21 stations in the five lines operated by the Subway: Parada Inglesa, Jardim São Paulo-Ayrton Senna, Paraíso, Vila Prudente, Vila Madalena, Artur Alvim, Vila Matilde, Penha, Belém, Anhangabaú, Palmeiras-Barra Funda, Capão Redondo, Campo Limpo, Vila das Belezas, Oratory, Vila Prudente (Line 15-Silver), Alto da Boa Vista, Borba Gato, Brooklin, Tamanduateí and Santa Cecilia.
The users must observe the rules of use of the Metropolitan Company , which include the schedules: from Monday to Friday, from 8.30 pm; on Saturdays from 2pm onwards; access is allowed all day on Sundays and public holidays.
At CPTM, since 2007, the release of bicycles is valid on weekends, from 14:00 Saturday to the end of the commercial operation, and all day on Sundays and holidays.
