http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Porto_Metro
"As of 2007, the total cost of Porto Metro mass transit public transport system stands on 3,500 million euros - over 1% of Portugal's GDP. The first phase of the project alone, which was led by the mayors of several Grande Porto (Greater Porto) municipalities including Valentim Loureiro as a chairman of the state-owned company, was 140% more expensive than initially planned which means a slippage of over 1,500 million euros. The Porto Metro state-owned company has reported losses every year, reaching a record loss of 122 million euros in 2006.[1][2]"

That's normal since it's NOT a state owned company and is forced to operate as if it were one ... wich means low fares and high costs an NO state over-funding ...


compare it to Lisboa Metropolitan wich IS state owned and is constantly seing €€€ thrown into the abiss/black hole wich is its budget

And the initial estimates were for a much small scale system ... in fact it is astonishing that they managed to avoid the "usual" 200% cost overrun ...

Porto and Oporto are the same. Porto is Portuguese usage, in English it's mostly called Oporto.
