I stronlgy desagree. Every subway station in São Paulo is monitored by several security employees, including inside the trains, and outside the stations police cars are always parked by. In the central areas of the city, policemen patrol the sorroundings of the stations for a couple of blocks, anytime.

The subway is the cleanest and safest public transport in São Paulo, but there is no problem to take a bus at the central areas of the city. It gets dangerous in lines that cross the periphery and at some bus stations at night, in places where all the movement happens during the day. Aside from that, the worst problem of the public transport in São Paulo is that it is too crowded and the traffic jam. A tourist would turn OK using it.

São Paulo's subway is great! But is small and there's no subway station near Morumbi stadium. Take a private transfer. Period.
If you rental a car, just to park somewhere in the surrouldings you'll pay lots more than for the day, taxis will refuse to use the taximeter to charge you a huge fortune.
Use the subway to hang out for other places in town.
