Porto has a rather vast and modern transport network. The metro, the train and the buses are the most important public transport; for this reason, the TIP-Transportes Intermodais do Porto was created as the entity responsible for managing the intermodal ticket for the Porto Metropolitan Area – the Andante (the ticket system intermodal uses in the transport network in Porto Metropolitan Area).
The Metro of Porto consists of six lines, designated by letters (from A to F) and colors. When you enter the metro you will not have to go through any barrier: there will be devices in line, on poles. Place the ticket in front of the magnetic ticket machine to validate it. If you travel without a ticket, you will have to pay a fine.
By train you can depart from Porto to the most varied points of the district, the country and beyond. In Porto there are urban services (for day-to-day trips), long-distance services (to connect large cities) and regional services (which provide connections to urban centers).
Porto was the first city in the Iberian Peninsula to have an electric car system. However, buses and the metro have taken its place, but there are still some trams running.
Although Porto is a city that can be visited on foot, there are certain places that you will need to go by private transport.
If you are thinking of taking a taxi, have some sense of the path you need to take (see it on a map or ask someone) to make sure you are not overcharged. Taxis cost more in the evening because the taxi ride is more expensive.
Uber/TVDE started its activities in Portugal in 2014 and, currently, the company has more than 8 thousand drivers. It is considered one of the most innovative multinationals in the world. At present, it is one of the most important modes of travel among the youth and it is also one of the most affordable.

Shared mobility and electric vehicles are realities that will expand very sharply in the next decade, and what a great challenge to create investment opportunities for this change to happen. The future mobility systems must focus on the possibility of choosing and responding to the needs of users, namely in terms of safety, comfort, speed, flexibility of transport solutions and information availability.Discover more
