Just back from Lisbon and I'm now sure the public transportation is excellent. Amazing coverage, almost everywhere you're close to a bus or tram stop. Those are kinda slow due, but the metro's provide for fast transportation. And ferries are an excellent way to see some great views from the city.

I agree with Arpels: now I vote "Very Good" but in 2010, with all the new metro stations and other new infrastructures concluded, I will change my vote to "excellent"!
Lisbon is really becoming better and better!!! Is actually one of the best european cities in almost all items!

That's true. Investment in this area is totally a must for future generations.

Yes, see this website about it.

Actually quite a lot of cities in the world have funiculars. What's special about Lisbon is that the funiculars run on the street like trams.

Genoa also has public elevators such as the one below (some reports say as many as 12, although I don't know how many are still operating today)

I like the variety of the network and its rolling stock. Old trams together with modern low-floor light rail vehicles, operating on the same tracks... I've seen it only in Milan before...And a beautiful metro system with modern stations and cars, but also ferries and funiculars. There are a few cities with ferries and fewer with funiculars.

well, i voted 'good', because there is one thing I miss in the Lisbon system and that is connections. You have to change systems very often, from Fertagus to metro to train to tram to funicular and back to suburban train... and the exchanges are not always very clear (and it is an absolut disaster to get to the Santa Apolonia station).

This was the case in 2002, maybe the missing link to Santa Apolonia and the rebuilding of the Rossio station has in the meantime become a reality and things are much better now?

Not really. There''s still no metro to St. Apolonia, they're still building it.

Rossio itself is now finished, but the tunnels towards it are now being renovated, so still no trains to Rossio.

Lisbon's metro is fast expanding and more underground stations and extended lines are being projected to slice through some of the Lisbon's hills and the airport, even though a new airport is planned some 40km north from the city centre.

Buses are too slow! We have to wait too much for them!! It sucks a lot!
Underground metro is the oposite: works very well, fastly and with more stations "every day"!

EXCELLENT!
As well as people of Lisbon!
If you want to get to the other side of river- fertagus runs very often. Please show one of the most magnificent views I' ve ever seen if you have some - from the fertagus running through Ponte 25Abril! That's awesome feeling - this train is almost flying above the river!
Two inconvinient things that I found in Lisbon were:
-not enough signs-especially when you change from metro to cp or fertagus
-if you get off at Roma/Arreiro there's no signs how to get to metro station, what's more Roma and Arreiro stations are pretty far from the train

The rest: ELEVADORS (especially St Justa and Gloria), ELECTRICOS (esp. 28): GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
