World Cup 2014, Bus System. What about fails?
Brazil has spent a lot - meaning "a lot" - with the World Cup 2014, but even with the high cost of the stadiums (around 500 million dollars each), it seems the government (that has a pleasant slice of this rich cake) can't make things work. Right above, this is the new transportation system called "Move", but doesn't seem that its moving quite right. According to some local people, many of them are still closed. Some structures inside don't work. Just few are functioning. The doors are made of glass, what is not appropriated for the country. As protests are happening all around. Brazilian people had suffered a lot in the midle of a crazy traffic and thick clouds of dust for a long time, and everywhere. This transportation system that looks like some used in Europe, is far away from being like Europe. Many brazilian main cities have a huge battle with too many cars , much more that they can support. "Move" deals with a traffic that doesnt exists in Europe, for example, and which has large roads. Brazil struggles with a high cost of this transportation system, that doesn't seem to offer any big help to the passengers. Looks more like a expensive toy that won't work too much. There were protests in brazilian streets months ago against "Move". Brazilian people know that there are many expensive structures that won't show or justify the price spent on them. Looks like many things are working that fine. And brazilian people will pay for it. (Rosaly Bastos - Brazil).
