There were many years of waiting until the inauguration of the train to Guarulhos airport. Since 2002, this is one of the promises of the former governor Geraldo Alckmin.
The regular train runs every day from 4 am to midnight. The fare costs BRL 4.40*. On weekdays, the train interval between Engenheiro Goulart and Guarulhos Airport stations is 20 minutes. On Saturdays and Sundays the break can be up to 30 minutes.
In any case, the lines departing from the center of São Pauloas we will discuss below.
Train to Guarulhos Airport: Our experience

Regular train from Engenheiro Goulart station
Before giving you the most practical information about the train to Guarulhos airport, I will tell you about our experience, as shown in the video below.
Regular trains depart from Engenheiro Goulart station (Jade line). to get there We took the subway to Brás stationwe took the train to Calmon Viana and we went down in Goulart Engineer (20 minutes drive).
It is also worth taking the train at the Tatuapé station, since there you have to walk less to get off the subway and go to the CPTM.
Taking the train to Guarulhos airport
The train to Guarulhos airport is the same model already used by CPTM. The train we took was new and had air conditioning. Gives Goulart Engineer to the airport there is only one more station, the Guarulhos – CECAP.
We took the train at 11:29 am and arrived at the station Airport – Guarulhos at 11:41 am.
Arrival at the airport station
As has been widely reported, the train does not go to the airport itself. After getting off the train, you have to cross a footbridge and then catch a bus free leading to the terminals.
Bus from the station to the terminal
When we arrived, the bus was already there, but according to some employees, the waiting time is a maximum of 15 minutes.
Of course, the ideal would be for the train to stop at each terminal, but since this is not possible, let’s face reality, right?
By bus to Terminal 2, it took six minutes. As for terminal 3, it took another six minutes. For those who have a flight departing from Terminal 1, it is possible to take the bus or walk, as the distance from the station to it is only 500m.
total travel time
From the moment we took the train at Engenheiro Goulart station until the moment we get off at terminal 3we delay 33 minutes.
Let’s go all the way…
We took the subway at see at 10:15 am until the bras. At 10:45 amwe boarded the train that was going to Goulart Engineerwhere we arrive at 11:05 am. As the train was in the testing phase and only passed every half hour, let’s discount these thirty minutes.
We took the train at 11:29 am. we arrived at the station Airport – Guarulhos at 11:41 am. Our bus until the terminal 3 left at 11:51 am. we arrived at terminal 3 at 12:03.
in total, from Sé to Terminal 3, discounting the 30-minute wait for the train, it took 54 minutes. With the 25 minutes of waiting for the train, it took us 1h19.
Returning was faster, as we arrived at the same time the train passed. We decided to get off at the station tatuapé and not in bras, because the journey to change from the train to the subway is shorter. With that, we save a lot of time.
We took the train at the Aeroporto – Guarulhos station at 12:43 pm and we went to Engenheiro Goulart. We disembark at Tatuapé and take the subway to Sé, where we arrive at 1:29 pm.
