Possibility of 3 New Bullet Train Projects

In Berlin, the Minister of Transport, Paulo Passos, speaking from the largest railway exhibition in the world, said Brazil will study three new bullet train projects. The high-speed trains would potentially be between São Paulo and Curitiba, Campinas and Belo Horizonte, and between Campinas and the Minas Gerais Triangle (of which Uberlândia and Uberaba are the principal cities).

Meanwhile, the first bullet train project between Rio and São Paulo, which has investments of up to 34 billion reals, has a end-date of 5 years from now (meaning it should be ready by the Olympics 2016). – Source (in PT)
