The Porto metro is very modern, the first lines were put into operation in the XXI century, in 2002. Most of the lines are above ground, and the metro goes underground only in the historical center. Therefore, it is called the metro, although strictly speaking it is not a metro, but a high-speed tram. And the tram costs quite different money, so the transport system of Porto has increased a large length of lines. Line B consists of 35 stations and is almost 34 km long! There are no turnstiles at the entrance to the station, but the ticket must be validated. For validation, lean the ticket against the black circle on the validator and wait for the beep when the green light turns on. The remainder on the Andante card will be displayed on the validator's scoreboard. The tram cars are produced by the Canadian Bombardier, the same one that recently produced narrow-body passenger aircraft. The Porto tram has a fairly simple topology, but there are nuances... Only the Trinidad station is an interchange for all 6 lines. 5 routes (except yellow) run together from "Campanha" station to "Senhora da Hora" station. You have to be careful which car you sit in. Line B has its own characteristics. Here, as in the New York City subway, there are two train options. B-stops at all stations, and Bx is an express train that passes through some of the stations. And, of course, a big plus of Porto - you can take the tram line E (purple) to the airport. Which we did!

Having used metro systems right across Europe the Porto one is really not that much different. It is really easy to use for non Portuguese speakers with everything clearly signposted and easy to understand - as long as you remember which station and line you need to reach just follow the maps and you can't go wrong. The machines too are easy to use either with or without a transport card which you can preload with a certain amount of money - just remember to validate at entry point.

I was under the impression that there was little information for foreigners. The main station, too cold and impersonal.

The metro system in Porto is very simple to follow. You get to the station and charge your ticket with the zone that you want to travel to. This is easy to do because all the stations have the zones next to them so all you need to know is the name of the station where you want to stop and check the zone next to it. Once you do that, validate your ticket before you get into the metro and done. There are no bars to stop you from just walking in without paying, so you'll have to do this out of your own moral compass
