Metro do Porto covers operating costs
31 May 2016



PORTUGAL: According to the annual report and accounts approved by shareholders at their annual general meeting on May 30, Metro do Porto SA covered 105⋅9% of operating costs from receipts in 2015, the first time that it has made a surplus since operations began in 2002.

The surplus of €2⋅3m recorded in 2015 is ‘virtually unprecedented’ for a European public transport operator, says Metro do Porto, driven by a 1⋅4% year-on-year increase in traffic which set a new record of 57⋅7 million passenger-journeys. Fares income in 2015 also set a new record of €40⋅9m, up 3⋅3% on the year before

İ read that the government has reserved money for the metro.
Will the boavista line be built with this money ?

We don't know yet, but probably it won't be built because it's too expensive. The money reserved by government isn't enough. Instead we think the extension of Line D to Vila D'Este (in the suburbs ) will be built as well as a small extension of Line F to Carvalha avenue (also in the suburbs) in Gondomar.
