The transport system in the country is well developed and is mostly represented by trams and buses. Buses are especially popular.

International and intercity flights are served by comfortable buses. The proposed schedule is being followed very strictly. Tickets can be bought at a special kiosk. The city bus fare is approximately 1 EUR and it remains valid for two trips.

Transport in the capital of Portugal, Lisbon, is represented by the metro, buses, trams and lifts. The metro offers 4 lines. All of them connect the central part of the city with the sleeping outskirts. If you wish, you can purchase a one-day pass, which will cost about 1.5 EUR, or a three-day pass. The price in this case is 3.5 EUR.

For tourists, special passes are offered, including travel by all types of transport, plus funiculars:

  • one-day - 2.2 EUR;
  • for 4 days - 8 EUR;
  • weekly subscription - 12 EUR.

You can buy them at the train station or metro station.


You can recognize such a car by the characteristic inscription on the roof. Typically, taxis are beige. But sometimes there are cars painted in green and black tones..

Travel around the city is paid based on meter readings. But the calculation of the cost of a trip outside the city will be based on the mileage. Please note that you will also have to pay for the return journey, which the car will do empty.

From 10 pm to 6 am, an additional 20% is added to the existing rate. If your baggage weighs more than 20 kilograms, you will have to pay extra for it. You will find the table of surcharges in the salon.

In Portugal, it is customary to tip the driver 10% of the cost of the trip..
