Navegante, and Lisboa viva: tailor-made transport
The best way to travel in Lisbon and its surroundings is by public transport. Perfect? Certainly not perfect! Convenient? Yes, if you learn to master the codes.
With its series “Travelling with us”, http://www.lisbonne-affinités.com offers you a summary of the offers and sad transports in the capital.
First step: city buses and trams
The ticket is called a pass. It consists in the purchase of a card, personal and non-transferable, Lisboa Viva (same for Lisboa viagem and 7 colinas).
It can be purchased in ten days for 7 euros or in one day for 12 euros. In this case, only two counters distribute it: Santo Amaro and Arco do Cego (shops). You must bring an identity photograph, passport or identity card and fill in a form. The Lisboa Viva card is valid for 4 years (13-30 years) and 6 years (over 30 years).
Short stay, several possibilities
Lisboa Viva, 7 colinas and Viva Viagem: these cards have the same function. They allow you to top up with the amount you want according to your needs, with a minimum of 3 euros and a maximum of 40 euros. This allows you to travel by metro, bus and tram in Lisbon until the amount is exhausted.
The metro, bus and tram ticket will cost you €1.50 compared to €2 and €3, respectively, purchased in the means of transport.
