Some tourists think yet that D. Luis bridge is for cars and they just go and then some cars appear in S. Bento's station

1)i t`s the general policy of the Porto Subway, personally I agree with that, because the stations cost less, and for the purpose of a subway station (that is a point off passage of people for a few minutes) it works fine!!!

2) it`s practical the system, only the ticketing system needs some ajusting in my opinion!!!


P.S.: for a turist, the best thing to do is to buy the “Andante Tour 1 Dia” (24h-5€) or “Andante Tour 3 Dias” (72h-11€), and one person can travel in all the subways, most of the buses and most of the trains in the metropolitan area.

The 24 hour tour ticket sounds great, very cheap, hopefully someday I get to visit Porto!

Very nice system. New Flexity also looks great, maybe even better than Eurotram.
What would U people from Porto say, how many people are there in all the metro-connected municipalities?

I think that the general opinion is that the New Flexity is better because is faster and comfortable, but the Eurotram is much beautiful on the outside.


The Porto Metropolitan Area has 1,4 Million people, but the network still has a lot of gaps, as you can see on the map that follows:



Legend:

Blue: actual network;

Red: 2nd phase (2011-2020) = 1,2 Bilion Euros;

Yellow: 3rd phase (2021-....).
