That is municipality population.
In red, São Paulo municipality, 11,4 million people.
Other cities you can see the names in the metro:
Guarulhos: 1,2 million
São Bernardo do Campo: 774k
Santo André: 680k (under the "Sul" in São Caetano do SUL)
Mogi das Cruzes: 396k
Diadema: 390k (between São Bernardo do Campo and São Paulo)
Carapicuiba: 373k (between Osasco and Barueri)
Suzano: 267k (between Itaquaquecetuba and Mogi das Cruzes)
Taboão da Serra: 251k
Embu das Artes: 245k (between Cotia and São Paulo)
Itapevi: 206k (northwest of Cotia)
only with municipalities above 200k, we already have 6,6 million people. Plus the 11,4 million of São Paulo municipality, that gives us 18 million people. The other 2 million comes from several municipalities below 200k people.
notice that some huge cities nearby, like Campinas (1 million people), São José dos Campos (636k), Jundiaí (370k) and all the cities of the Baixada Santista (Santos, 420k, Guarujá, 300k, São Vicente, 336k, etc) are NOT being counted, because they are not part of the contiguous urban stain.
