Population Explosion in Sao Paolo

With over twelve million people the Sao Paolo area is easily the largest metropolis in Brazil. But it’s also notable for another kind of population…motorcycles.

There’s been such a rapid expansion of numbers in recent months that this form of transport is becoming of really major importance. The DMV-SP ( State Department of Motor Vehicles) estimates that there are now very nearly one million motorbikes. That’s an average of one per every three households and represents an increase of 3.6% over last year.

There are still many more cars or trucks of course, but the popularity of two-wheeled transport is starting to close the gap. Relative cheapness to buy and run, ease of parking and storage and ‘nippy-ness’ in traffic congestion are all factors, say the Department.
