There are also accessible taxi services, specialized in the transportation of people with disabilities  or with reduced mobility. Click here for contacts [available from March 1st, 2017]

Finally, you perhaps want a bilingual taxi service, specillized in the transportation of people visiting São Paulo from abroad. In this case, you can check the WA Bilingual Taxi website or
this website of a bilingual driver.

Public Transportation

You can arrive at the University City by subway, train or bus.

In São Paulo, the subway lines are equipped with signs in English and also with an English voice-system that annouces the stations' names, what may make this option the most comfortable one among the public transportation means. More information about this service can be checked on the English version of the subway system website. There is also an app of the São Paulo Subway system for smartphones, in Portuguese and English:

Individual passes for subway can be bought in any subway satation, at the box office, and the same is valid for the train system - however, a train ticket cannot be used in a subway's ratchet and vice-versa. Individual passes for buses are paid inside the buses for the cashier that controls the ratchet in the middle of the bus. Every individual pass for any public transportation means currently costs R$3.80.
