In November 1977, an agreement was signed between the state and federal government organs, to prepare the PITERP - Integrated Plan for Bus Terminals.
It was agreed that the Metrô would conduct studies of passenger transport, in the city of São Paulo, for the planning, implementation and operation, directly or through third parties.
In May, 1977, the Metrô began to manage and commercially exploit the Jabaquara Terminal and opened, in May, 1982, the modern Tietê Bus Terminal, to replace the old Júlio Prestes Bus Station.
Subsequently, the Bresser and Barra Funda Bus Terminals were implanted (in January, 1988 and December, 1989), but the Bresser Bus Terminal was closed in Dec/2001. In January, 1990, the Bus Terminals were outsourced by Metrô, which, through public bidding, hired the Prima Consortium, to manage and commercially exploit the four Bus Terminals in the city of São Paulo, including the responsibilities of maintenance and preservation of the existing facilities, as well as the extension and modernization of the terminals.
In the Tietê and Barra Funda Bus Terminals, there are also parking spaces for vehicles, allowing a better integration.
The Bus Terminals in the city of São Paulo are integrated into the Metrô system, facilitating access for passengers with greater comfort, safety and speed.
