A New Wave of Protests Sweeps São Paulo Against Public Transportation Fare Hikes

Global Voices: "A study carried out in 2015 by Fundação Getúlio Vargas, a local research center, found that public transport in 21 Brazilian cities are among the most costly in the world in relation to the average salary, outranking cities like London, Tokyo and New York. The study calculated how many minutes the average employee needs to work in order to afford a single journey bus ticket — 13.3 minutes in São Paulo, 13.2 in Rio de Janeiro, 11.3 in London, 6.5 in Tokyo and 5.8 in New York."
