Getting from Sao Paulo (Pinheiros) to Campinas

I am going to Brazil in a few weeks and I am trying to figure out the best way to get from Sao Paulo (the Pinheiros area) to Campinas. Could someone give me some guidance on buses, trains, drivers, etc? Since I am flying on from Campinas to Rio, I don't want to rent a car just to get to Campinas.

Thanks!

I need to get to Campinas to spend the night with a family friend (one who cannot pick us up in SP unfortunately) and then the next day I fly off to Rio so I don't think the airline would be an option.

You have two bus companies connecting São Paulo to Campinas, both are at the Tietê Buses Terminal, cost R$ 23,20 (US$ 11,50). You have many schedules either from the company COMETA, last 1 hour and 10 min., or from the company CRISTÁLIA, last 1 hour and 30 min.. The distance is 96Km and is a very good expressway and both buses have air with reclined seats and you can use your credit card .

To Campinas, I prefer the CRISTÁLIA company.

From Pinheiros:

At Faria Lima Station (near Largo da Batata, a huge square in the heart of Pinheiros) take Underground Line 4 (Yellow Line) to Luz

At Luz, connect to Line 1 (Blue Line) and get off at Portuguesa-Tietê station

This is right next to the bus station

Head for the Cristália/Cometa booth which is on the left just before the ATMs.

Both companies sell tickets from the same booth. To get CRISTÁLIA you must mention this to the cashier, otherwise you will get the next bus (regardless of company).
