Lisbon

Day pass for transportation

A day pass for transportation for 6eu was mentioned somewhere. Does this pass include the metro only, or busses and trams (tram 28?) as well? Do you purchase it from the machines in the metro?

Here's the official site with the info in English:

metro.transporteslisboa.pt/e...

You can get a Viva Viagem card (day tickets are on cardboard cards) from Metro ticket machines and ticket offices in some Metro stations (see the link for which ones) and also from any of the ticket kiosks in the city.

The card itself costs 50 eurocents on top of the 6 euro Carris/Metro ticket. You can't get the ticket without buying a card.

Yes, the day ticket covers all the city trams, including tram 28 and tram 15 to Belem, and all the elevadores (including Santa Justa). I wrote a VT tip about how to get the best out of a day ticket in Lisbon:

Well, leics was just minutes faster in responding :-) But you have more flavours of 'all Lisbon'. For instance 'travel all Lisbon ' for €10, giving access to some regional trains as well.

I loved to ride on the 28 tram, ride it before it dies of old age!

Lisbon is a nice city, so enjoy!

Tram 28 won't die of old age...it makes far too much money! :-)

Tram 28 always very busy with visitors (and locals too) so I suggest you get on it at the starting point in P Martim Moniz and then ride it all the way to its other terminus. Get off, wait a couple of minutes then get back on again when the driver allows it, and ride all the way back to wherever you want to get off.

The same point about boarding also applies to the modern tram 15 to Belem. Again, it is very busy indeed, with visitors and with locals, and I've seen several trams so full that they did not even stop at e.g. Cais do Sodre. Board it at its starting point in Placa da Figueira:

Be aware that tram 15, in particular, is very popular with pickpockets (as are its queues). Keep money & valuables safely underneath your clothing.
