Public transportation is the best option to get to the city centre

Public transport is the easiest way to get to the city centre, next Saturday, because the whole area will have traffic restrictions during the afternoon, early evening. Around Avenida dos Aliados and nearby streets will be established a security perimeter between 3pm and 8pm, creating an area restricted to traffic (as indicated in the mobility plan/traffic arrangements). To the restricted area is added another area with restricted traffic, with the trafficking conditions to be guaranteed and decided by the police forces.

Metro and STCP increase services, thus guaranteeing a faster, safer and more comfortable journey.

Metro do Porto also increases its offer, with lines A, C, D and F and also in the joint intersection between 2pm and 9pm, by using double cars and increasing its frequency in line D.

In the joint intersection (Senhora da Hora - Dragão) there will be a capacity increase with more services in double cars, also between 2pm and 9pm, which will enable to guarantee a greater capacity and with better frequencies during that period.

Eventually, the planned traffic cuts can be widened - restricted area - if the safety conditions determine it.

CP - Comboios de Portugal will once again make available a special return ticket for the price of 2 euros per person, on the trips taken during the month of December on weekends and bank holidays, on the urban trains of Porto, also informing that there will be more seat capacity during these days.

The "park and ride" option, with validation of the Andante travel ticket, will be applied in the car parks of Casa da Música (644 spaces), Campo Alegre (497 spaces) and Estádio do Dragão (850 spaces) where it’s possible to park your car for 0,95 euros for a period of 12 hours, and take the metro or a STCP bus that goes to Porto city centre.

Campo 24 de Agosto car park will also provide 300 parking spaces at a fee of 5 euros for a period of 12 hours, without needing to validate the Andante ticket.

On December 1st, Mytaxi platform will have four points for picking up and dropping off passengers within the security perimeter. They are:

  • Rua do Bonjardim, at the intersection with Rua de Guilherme da Costa Carvalho ("Cancela Velha");
  • Rua Fernandes Tomás, next to number 936 (next to the entrance of the car park of Trindade);
  • Avenida D. Afonso Henriques, at the intersection with Rua de Mouzinho da Silveira ("São Bento");
  • Praça de Gomes Teixeira ("Leões").

Enjoy any of the available options and welcome Christmas in the city centre, with no stress or worries and in complete safety.
