Avoid buying tickets onboard, since it can be very expensive. Instead buy pre-payed tickets at any metro station or newspaper stores.
We recommend choosing a card (Viva Viagem, 7 Colinas card or Lisboa Viva card) and charge it with Zapping, since it gives you more options and control. Zapping consists in charging money onto a Viva Viagem, 7 Colinas card or Lisboa Viva card, which is deducted as the customer validates the card on different transports, according to the prices in each Operator. This solution was designed for customers who are not regular users but often use one or more Public Transport Operator. You can top-up the card with amounts of a minimum of €3 and a maximum of €40.
You can also choose between single tickets or 24h tickets with the following conditions.
Carris (Bus)/Metro single ticket
Valid for a trip across the CARRIS and Metro network for 60 minutes after the first input validation. The order of use of the two operators for which the ticket is valid is arbitrary.
However, the use of the Metro should be interspersed with CARRIS and you can´t make two followed trips in Metro. It is understood by a trip on Metro, an entrance and an exit one station to another station, regardless of the number of lines used to arrive at your destination. In CARRIS can be made transshipments you need throughout our network. The ticket can also be used on only one operator for 60 minutes, respecting the rule indicated above for the Metro.
