Santos is also building a15 km light rail line, or VLT da Baixada. Cars have been ordered and the line, electric rather than deisel, is expected to open in 2014. Studies on several possible extensions are also being reviewed.
The 16 km Intra-Metro once connected Santos with Sao Vicente but was closed in 1999 due to deficits. Part of the route will comprise Santos' VLT.
