Sem bondinho

About a month ago, the trolley that served as both a tourist attraction and affordable local transportation to our neighborhood crashed and killed 5 people. Footage from the aftermath can be seen here. Fingers have been pointed all around, there have been lots of protests, and for now the trolley service has been suspended. 

We're still without the trolley! But the metro is coming!!! Guimarães Station, Future Installations

We live on a hill. The metro is not coming. The trolley was basically free (it cost around .40, assuming you actually paid instead of hanging off the side), while the buses cost around $2, an enormous difference. Brazilian humor...
