Local transport Lisbon Reviews
Save some euros! Mar 08, 1999
If you do not know, and the information is not exactly thrown at you, you can waste a lot by buying single trip tickets for bus or metro. The cost of a single bus journey is (2010) €1.45.
The cost of a day ticket is €3.75 and these are valid throughout the Carris network (bus, tram, elevador) and on the metro.
One caution that should be out of date, if the Carris website means what it says and the tickets are really for 24 hours. When a friend and I used them in 1999, we were travelling at about 9.00 on tickets bought at about 11.00 the previous day. Tickets were checked and we were surprised to discover that we were travelling illegally because tickets became invalid at 02.00 on the day after they were bought. It's worth checking this.
I know a Lisboa card is also valid but I don't know any details because it always seems, like other city cards, to tie you to going to a host of museums in a day if you want to get the best from it.
