      Lisbon Transportation

      Lisbon has a transportation network that works smoothly. The metro, trams, funiculars, buses, commuter trains, and ferries make up Lisbon's transportation system. Taxis are available too. 


      Lisbon trams are one of the most convenient modes of transportation. The capital of Portugal now features five tram routes and 58 trams, 40 of which are antique streetcars. 


      Lisbon buses are vital for moving around the city. Particularly for certain journeys, you need to take a bus. Because Lisbon's metro system is very restricted, the city's local buses were previously required for certain travels, such as those to Lisbon Airport. Lisbon has a 600-bus fleet with 146 different routes.


      In Lisbon, the "lifts or elevators" are essentially funiculars that assist locals and tourists. Three funiculars serve the Portuguese capital, all of which were designed by Raoul Mesnier de Ponsard, a Portuguese engineer.  Elevador do Lavra, Elevador da Glória, and Elevador da Bica are the names of the these three lifts.

      The Santa Justa Lift is a Lisbon elevator that connects the Baixa neighborhood to the Bairro Alto region in the quickest time possible.
