Video apelativo da TV Folha vira manchete contra o Brasil no exterior
You'd better hope bus drivers aren't on strike this summer.
Brazilian daily Folha de S.Paulo on Wednesday posted this frightening video of an overcrowded Metro station in São Paulo, where bus drivers went on strike Tuesday to protest the terms of their union's deal with management. At least 300,000 commuters have been affected, but probably none more than several women in this video. One woman appears to faint as the crowd surges toward an escalator, and at last two others are trapped between ascending and descending escalators. Remember this the next time you consider whining on Twitter about a 10-minute delay in your subway commute.

Beijing’s beleaguered commuters already have to deal overcrowded public transportation, massive traffic jams and air so dirty that biking to work is often not an option. This week brought a new woe: airport-style security at some subway stations, which created massive lines and long waits to get on trains in the first place.
Beijing’s subway network is the busiest in the world, and commuters take about 10 million rides a day between approximately 200 subway stations. Even a small malfunction, like a temporary signal failure, can lead to huge crowds on subway platforms.
“The usual subway security check no longer involves just ‘putting your bags through’ [an X-ray scanner] as commuters now have to be checked as though they are going through airport customs,” The Nanfang Insider reported. Nine stations have instituted the new checks, which according to Beijing police “should not take more than 30 minutes.”
The added security checks at Beijing’s subway stations didn’t make some citizens feel much safer. As social media users traded photos of the Beijing commuter queues, many questioned the purpose of it all. Surely “throwing a bomb into this crowd would be more lethal” than setting one off on the subway, noted one skeptic
