Lisbon's Public Transport

The city of Lisbon has an exceptional range of public transport, which includes trams (old and new), funiculars, a street elevator, river ferries (passenger and car), underground Metro, railways (suburban, national and international), buses (city and suburban) and aircraft. Virtually all of these modes of transport are undergoing major expansion at the present time, which makes them particularly interesting.

I noticed someone voted "very bad".

How on earth could anyone vote "very bad" for Lisbon's public transport infrastructure. Ok, it's not perfect, which is why I voted "Very Good", but it is still a wonderful, and one of the most diverse networks in the world.

The only reason I can imagine that someone voted "very bad" is because we are looking at a pathetic sad individual (probably some dumb kid) who has a political grudge against Portugal, or the people.

I'm sorry, but whoever you are, you are really pathetic and sad. You probably don't have any friends and spend your free time when mummy is watching wanking in front of the monitor.

Can't judge the quality of it at this moment, haven't experienced it yet. But I do know Lisbon certainly has one of the most diverse public transport networks I've ever seen. Buses, old fashioned trams, modern low floor trams, a cable car, a people mover, ferries, suburban rail from two companies, funiculairs, elevators... It's amazing.

I vote for just "Good". My reasons are that I thikn it lacks a better information system.. it's very complicated to read those Bus maps , and metro plans are also a bit strange(they don't explain the connexions with the REFER lines very well, for instance).
I also think that the Metro network needs expansion (which is already being done). Until then I give it a 6.5/10.

I can't even understand people who vote for "Very Good".
Compared to two cities I know very well, Belgrade & Toronto, Lisbon is LIGHT YEARS AHEAD!

What more does a city need to rate "excellent" in everyone's mind, really?

Lets hope the new metro stations bring closer all the Lisbon's Bairros.

Actually Genoa in Italy could possibly exceed Lisbon here. It has a similar number of funicular's (I believe this is what ware called elevators in Lisbon), and it has 12 public elevators (as in lifts) compared to the 2 in Lisbon.

However, it is very hard finding information if all 12 are still working, where'as in Lisbon, they are very famous and in all the guide books.

WHOAH! I never realize Lisbon has such an extensive collection of public transportation systems. I suppose its not surprising as most European cities have such an extensive network.
