I visited Lisbon last week and can say: beautiful city. There are however some points to be improved in public transport:

* Frequency of tram 15 to Belem should be raised to 1 tram each 8 minutes in peak-times, also during weekends. I was nearly crushed between all classic tourists coming back from their visit to the monastery/Belem Tower. With a higher frequency, the number of people will be distributed more evenly across trams.

* As iconic and romantic it may be, I really think Carris should consider partial replacement of the vintage sets on lines 25 & 28. Because of the hills and tight curves, I think a pair of new single-car, high-floor trams might be the best choice.
Maybe Stadler wants to build such a custom solution, and otherwise there are plenty of East European builders to choose from..

* Metros on the Green line should be formed of 6-car trains permanently, instead of some trains only formed with 3 cars now.

Why are there such low frequencies on the linha azul and vermelha during some peak hours? Between 18:00 and 20:00 some parts of the blue line (Săo Sebastăo comes to mind) are completely packed with people and all trains come already full, I think 7 minutes is too low and there would probably be more fluidity with a 3.5 min frequency.

It's because of the crisis, I think. Less trains, less electricity, less
whatever...

Portugal was taken by gangsters, they sell the idea that the transportation have to adapt to the demand, so every train has to be full.
