I rode it many times these last days and I should say that I still can not clearily define it: it is a tram that tends to be LRT (tunnels and almost no crossings) + it is a tram-train because on some sections I think it runs on some conventional train tracks.

Est-ce important, une définition claire ? C'est un bon système, point, barre
Is it important to clearly define ? It's a good system, that"s all.

Relax dude.
Yes it is important to try to define a system because there are probably lots of members who did not get the opportunity to ride this system and who (including myself) when they hear the word "metro" and when then look at the pictures posted have the feeling something is not very "conventional".
This is called experience sharing and it may give added value.

It's a tram with lots of grade separation, something that in NA usually called LRT, and in Europe may be called 'pre-metro'. AFAIK it doesn't share tracks with railway trains, so it's definitely not a tram-train.

Government admits repeat tender to grant the Metro do Porto and STCP


The Secretary of State advances which the Spanish consortium did not sign their contracts, "will have to be released new tender."


Sergio Monteiro, Secretary of State for Transport, said the return request to the Court's grant of Metro do Porto contract and STCP was to defend the state.


"The Spanish consortium seem to want to give up the granting of STCP (whose tender was made in conjunction with the granting of Metro do Porto) and before the doubts we decided to take extra precautions," said Sérgio Monteiro Lusa.


The Secretary of State, which opened in Sever do Vouga the 25th edition of FICAVOUGA confirmed that requested the return of the contract to the Court of Auditors, but was perentório to deny that this was done by the government know in advance that the visa prior would not be granted, as today supported the PS.


"Apparently the PS is in favor of privatization when in government, and against when in opposition. Not worth the PS come with ghosts and it's good to clarify that it complies with the requirement that the private honor the commitment who took over in binding offer, "he said.


According to Sérgio Monteiro, the Spanish consortium that won the tender for the concession of Port Metro and STCP not sign the respective contracts, "will have to be released new tender."


In this scenario, until the new international tender outcome will be made further extensions of three months with the current operator, "these contracts that have been approved by the Court," as stressed.

Catalan outside the SCTP / Metro do Porto for infringement


The Ministry of Economy has confirmed the exclusion of the Spanish consortium TMB / Moventis for not having delivered the bank guarantee.





The Ministry of Economy confirmed to Lusa that the Spanish consortium TMB / Moventis did not give the bank guarantee required to assume the operation of the STCP, which makes fall the sub that company and Metro do Porto for 10 years.


"The company STCP has confirmed the Ministry of Economy which has not proceeded to pay the deposit and notified the TCC [formed by the TMB and Moventis companies] on the failure of the award," he told Lusa official source of protection.


The same source added that "the government's point of view, remains in force the resolution of the Council of Ministers which determined that the company is open to private enterprise to reduce costs and make investments in the fleet."


The deadline for the consortium to deliver the Collective Transport Company of Porto (STCP) the bank guarantee of approximately EUR 10 million ended on Tuesday in the evening.


With the failure of CBT with the STCP, will be followed by the termination of the sub Metro do Porto, something to which the Secretary of State for Transport had warned in July, even assuming the possibility of repeating the public tender for the sub the two companies.


"Obviously we would not want a dealer who fails one award in STCP and that gets the contract of Metro do Porto because, for one reason or another, do you like best," then stressed Sérgio Monteiro.


Today, the Ministry of Economy said that "failure [by the company] does not remove the reformist order to open to private companies", so the competition will be re-released "short-term" and "the ideal would be later this month."


The need to launch new tender stems from one of two candidates to the consortium has delivered the proposal after the deadline, resulting in a process with only one suitor who now, by default, will be away.


When the contract is signed, Sérgio Monteiro said the sub Metro do Porto will allow a saving of 98 million euros in ten years, without prejudice to the quality of service.


Sergio Monteiro stressed that, in parallel, there will be "a big advantage to the taxpayer" and that "for the first time in 2015, and at least ten years Metro do Porto will no longer have need for state support through compensation, which They are taxpayer dollars. "


In view of the force until December 31, 2008, he said the new contract ensures an overall saving of EUR 98 million.

Porto operating contract retendered
01 Sep 2015



PORTUGAL: Metro de Porto and bus operator STCP are retendering the contract to operate the city’s public transport networks, having agreed with preferred bidder Transports Ciutat Comtal that agreements reached earlier this year would be rescinded. All prequalified bidders for the earlier competition, including TCC, have been invited to participate.

A joint venture of privately-owned Barcelona tram operator Moventia and TMB which operates the Barcelona metro, TCC had signed an agreement on April 23 covering operation and maintenance of the Porto light metro network over a period of 10 years, depositing the necessary guarantee of €18∙3m

While I have no source in english (yet), Transdev won that tender. They had also won the tender to build, operate and maintain the original network, back in 1997.

Little remark from Railway Gazette:

Transdev and National Express’ Spanish business ALSA have been selected as preferred bidder to operate trams and buses in Porto from the first quarter of 2016
