METRÔ AND CPTM PROVIDE THE BLA CARD – LEISURE TICKET
It was released, on October 27th, 2007, the BLA LEISURE TICKET. The Metrô of São Paulo Company and the Metropolitan Trains of São Paulo – CPTM , companies, linked to the State Department of the Metropolitan Transport, made available to the users a new technological resource, valid only for rail transportation access. This is the Leisure Card, which provides discounts on the use of the Metrô and the CPTM trains on Saturdays, from 06:00pm until the close of operations on Sundays. The Leisure Card is also valid for all commercial operation lines of the Metrô-Rail system on national and São Paulo state holidays.
The Leisure Card can be purchased and recharged in all Single Ticket recharging Stands located on the Metrô stations.
To purchase the card, there is an initial cost of only R$ 2.00, with a required initial charge equivalent to 10 trips, at a cost of R$ 3.74 each.
All other recharges should be made in batches of 10 trips, also at a total cost of R$ 3.74 each, totaling R$ 37.41 – representing a R$ 5.74 savings for every 10 trips.
The value loaded on the card corresponds to 10 trips, which are equivalent to R$ 43.00, and each trip will be charged R$ 4.30, totaling 10 trips.
HOWEVER, THE PASSENGER WILL PAY R$ 37.41 FOR EACH RECHARGE, WHICH WILL RESULT IN A DISCOUNT OF R$ 5.59 FOR EACH 10 TRIPS.
