Easy to buy paper cards (.50 Euro) that you can top up with between 3 and 40 Euro for trips on trams, buses, trains and funiculars or elevators. Touch on when you enter and cards last 12 months or until the credit is used

Lisbon is convenient to enjoy using public transport, but only if you give the gimmicky tram and funicular a miss and use the Metro system. In any case, avoid entering the city with a car, since parking is a challenge and the hilly terrain does...More

A well organized transportation system, with modern means of transportation. The bus network I think could be better but nothing's perfect, right? A special chapter are the old trams and funiculars, picturesque yet very functional.

All transport in Lisbon is simple to use and understand. Not to pricey either. Lisbon for me was totally walkable apart from a trip to the airport and a bus to Belem.

Metro, trams, trains and buses, lots here and they take you where you want to go, although at times it is a little bit hard to put it all together. Still an impressive network and they have invested in it.

I wanted to love this city and its transport but I couldn't...The system of Viva Viagem (the reusable transport ticket) was completely nonsense: Once you top up the card, you cannot buy a day pass for this card, nor can you refund the amount you...More

Trains for Cascais leave Lisbon's Cais do Sodre station every 20 minutes or so. The schedule is posted there and on line, but they are so frequent that you can just show up. Trains for Sintra leave from the Rossio station... More
