Tram instead of buses
The purpose of this idea is to exchange the use of buses in the core of São Paulo to sustainable trams, such as those in San Francisco/ California, which is also a city full of hills, and those in many european cities. Since the creation of buses corridors the city has improved its traffic and the number of buses has been reduced. Therefore they could be easily exchangeable in order to implement trams that are cleaner and safer for pedestrians and cyclists. The use of buses not only pollute the air but also the aesthetics of the city.
The first movement would be to implement trams in the main avenues such as Paulista, Rebouças, Faria Lima, Brigadeiro Luis Antonio, Nove de Julho and others including the city centre, which are areas where people go to work every day. Some routes like "Sacomã-Terminal Pinheiros", "Paraíso-Campo Limpo" could easily be implemented specially because they are already connected to the train(cptm)/subway(metro).
This idea needs improvements and a bigger study of flows and commuting.
