HistoryEdit

Grajaú station was opened by FEPASA in 1992, to attended the district of Grajaú, as part of the Jurubatuba-Varginha operational extension. Initially it was composed of two wood platforms, built along with a pontillion which crossed over Aenida Belmira Marin. The two platforms had a ravine behind them with an inclination of approximately 5 metres (16 ft), considering the avenue level. The old station was deactivated on December 2001, along with the traffic of Jurubatuba-Varginha branch, and was demolished by CPTM for the construction of Line 9-Emerald above the old FEPASA South Line.

In 2008, a larger and modernized new station was built by CPTM in the same place of the old one and kept the name Grajaú, with free access to the SPTrans urban bus terminal.[2]
