Metro map of Lisbon

The metro in Lisbon was inaugurated on December, 29th of 1959. It only has four metro lines: the blue one, the yellow one, the green one and the red one. Plus, there are only 52 stations. While in Lisbon, you will probably use the metro a few times, because it is fast, practical and very easy to use!

The metro opens each day at 6.30 am and you can catch the last metro at 1 am. Click here to see the metro map of Lisbon and here for the official website!

Bus and trams map of Lisbon

It’s the CARRIS company that’s in charge of buses, trams and elevators in Lisbon. It was founded in 1872. Check this link to see the map for trams and buses! And click here if you want to see the map specifically for the trams.

Personally, every time I’m in Lisbon, I usually only use the trams, the elevators and the metro. The trams are so much fun and the metro is so simple to use and useful! These are my two favorite public transportations while in Lisbon!

If you plan on using the buses, the trams or the elevators, my advice is for you to check the CARRIS official website beforehand. There’s an english version of the website! This will surely come in handy to know the closest bus or tram station from where you’re staying at, for instance!

Here is a map that show some of the most important neighborhoods of Lisbon. As you can see Belém is a bit far from the city center, which contains Bairro Alto, Chiado, Terreiro do Paço, and Baixa. Alfama is not mentioned in the map but it is near Baixa.

If you only have three days in Lisbon, read this which will help you plan your trip for you to make sure you don’t miss anything important!

My article about a few of the most important maps of Lisbon is now over! I hope you’ve enjoyed it and that it has been helpful!

Let me give one advice: for fifty cents, get a Viva Viagem travel ticket at any newspaper kiosks or metro ticket offices. To use your ticket, you will have to charge it. You can do it at the same place you’ve bought it! For 6.50 euros, you can travel the city one whole day. This travel option is the best, because it is less expensive, it is perfect for people who will only be in the city for a few days! Plus, the Viva Viagem ticket enables you to travel Lisbon through the different means of public transport, such as the metro, buses, trams, and even elevators.

Whenever one is in Lisbon, they always want to hop in an elevator, which is one of the attractions of Lisbon. When you buy your ticket to an elevator on board, it will cost you 3.45 euros, but if you use your Viva Viagem ticket when getting in, you will only be spending 1.45 euros!
