Yes .. .sadly when they did the Expo1998 they renewed the riverside steets and the trams were no more ...


All the way from Baixa/Terreiro do Paço (namelly the loop at Campo das Cebolas) to Xabregas and beyond (where the complete renewall of the landscape took place for Expo'98) they replaced the old trams with articulated bus services.

But there are plans for a reinstalment of "proper" tram routes in lisboa again ... one of them is precisely the T.Paço to Oriente along the riverside.

Very nice system. But for such a modern metro network why is there such a lack of escalators. I can understand in metro's like Paris which is very old and in many cases not too deep, but many of the Lisbon stations are quite deep and many steps but no escalators.

No escalators ???


From platform level to HALL there's always stairs + elevators ... only from the hall to surface there is escalators ... and in the exit usually theres a couple of steps also.

This of course in the new (post 1980) stations ... in the old sub-surface stations theres no escalators at all ...

The answer is simple ... theres elevators for those needing mobility ... escalators (and walking carpets (?)) are there only when theres a great different between hall's.

Interesting. Maybe I missed them, but I seemed to find them missing from even the newer stations. I remember a few in the central part of the city that had these great halls, but only steps.

If they are there, are they well sign posted? It does become a hassle when carrying heavy bags after or before a flight when travelling.

The Green line is not that deep (except at the southern end) with most of it being an old cut and cover just below st level stations.

You may be thinking of some of the inner Blue Line (seagull Line) stations from Marquez to Baixa. The two new stations between Baixa and Santa Apolonia have escalators. Baixa seems quite deep, esp if you enter/exit from the west side as it has about 4 different elevators to get from street to concourse level.

Some of the newer stations on the Yellow (Seagull) line north of Campe Grande are very deep esp Ameixoeira which seems like is has been converted from a large, deep old missle silo.

I assume that in due course all stations will need some form of elevator/escalator access for the disabled in order to comply with EU requirements.

The design of the newest metro stations is a disgrace: they have long walking corridors with unjustifiable twist and turns and complete absence of escalators from platform to halls - in its place there are a kind of bottleneck stairs (i.e. Baixa, S.Sebastião), which are narrower at the top making difficult the flowing of passengers. These newest stations may be aesthetically pleasent but are completely user-UNfriendly. The responsible for their design are peolpe who have never and will never have to travel by metro, otherwise they would not commit such gross design errors.

As far as I can recall, some are, others don't....in Portugal there is some problems in this aspect...the heavy bags are a problem...yes, but for me this takes special importance when we are talking about older, or some mobility handicap...

But in general like sotavento said, this is a problem in the older metro stations...
