Vila Olímpia in SP – More helipads than bus stops

Picture 3

Coming out of Folha Online (in PT), is a story on how in the Vila Olímpia in the Zona Oeste neighborhood of São Paulo, there are 25 helipads versus 24 bus stops. Ok, not that big of a difference but still telling. The situation creates a hectic times for air traffic control for that area and shows how the urban planning of the region from the early 90’s and onward, was somewhat poorly planned.

If somehow it would make some sort of sense to do so, I would like to see the situation reversed one day per week, so those traveling by helicopter have to travel by bus and vice versa.
