How to get to the city

BY AIR​
  • TAXI:

    You can always find a taxi at the airport outside the Arrivals or Departures terminals. It may be easier to get a taxi outside the Departures Hall. A regular taxi ride to the city centre is around €10-15, including luggage fees. Depending on the time of day, the ride to your hotel will take between 15 minutes (daytime, not too much traffic) and 35 minutes (rush hour).

  • UNDERGROUND (Metro): 

    Lisbon airport has an underground station with a direct line to the city centre. The Aeroporto-Saldanha Red Line takes you to downtown Lisbon in about 20 minutes. Please note that you must purchase the Viva Viagem electronic travel card (€0.50), which you should then top up with balance for your journeys. It can be used both for the underground and bus networks. An underground one-way ticket costs €1.50 https://www.metrolisboa.pt/en/buy

  • AEROBUS: 

    There is an express bus stop at the Arrivals Exit (small buses, van-like, called Aerobus). The regular fare for a one-way ticket is €4. The 24h-Aerobus-Pass may be purchased on board, online, at airobus.pt, or at the Turismo de Lisboa (Tourist Office) counters at the Arrivals Hall. This ticket is valid for 24 hours of unlimited journeys in the Aerobus network. Buses run every 20 minutes in two different circuits, from 7.00 a.m. to 11.00 p.m. For more information about lines and circuits, please access https://www.aerobus.pt/en-GB/Home-2.aspx

  • REGULAR BUSES:

    Buses 744 and 783 have early journeys to and from the city centre from around 5.30 a.m. weekdays and Saturdays, a little later on Sundays and holidays. They serve most stops along the Aerobus 1 route but are slower. Route 783 runs from the airport into the city until midnight every night. There is a night bus (bus 208) every 30 – 60 minutes between the airport and the city center from 23.40 p.m. to 4.40 a.m. Onboard fare is €2 but please note that the maximum luggage size allowed is 50x40x20 cm http://www.carris.pt/en/home/
