A couple of years after experiencing the Metro in Lisbon, we got a chance to use it again this time around, and as we remembered, it is a rather solid and convenient system.

Lisbon's subway is cheap and convenient, but certainly not the best. The stations are not in good conditions and trains are usually full of graffiti. It also gets extremely crowded with hordes of tourists in major interchanges. Anyway, it is still the best way to...More

We bought a day pass which was valid for 24 hours. However, they did not tell us that the last thirty minutes the pass can only EXIT the station. So even if you have a short ride the last thirty minutes the passes are useless....More

Buying tickets was very straight forward, even though we needed the English pages on the machines. Signage was clear. Trains were very frequent and spacious. Some stations felt a little isolated / unwelcoming but that's the same in most cities around the world.

There is a stop at the airport, as well as at train stations, like Oriente and Cais do Sodre. You buy a card and start using, either by machine or by standing on line for a teller behind a window. This is a good way...More

This is a good service that will get you all around the city. Good luck to anyone trying to work out the ticket system. We managed it, but not sure we had the best deal.

I don't know exactly, but the 4 metro lines are interlinked, and getting to the main railway stations is very easily reached by metro. Hope this helps?
