Carnival 2019 – CP strengthens supply and launches special fares

CP - Comboios de Portugal is going to strengthen the supply of the Oporto Urban services, over the Carnival period, by increasing the seats in scheduled trains, adding special trains and launching special fares.

Thus, in order to make the access to the carnival parades of Ovar and Vila Nova de Famalicão – on the afternoons of March 3 and 5 – easier, the scheduled trains of the Oporto Urban Lines will have a higher number of seats.

In the night of 4 and early morning of March 5, to meet the foreseeable increase of demand to the traditional parties of “Noite Mágica” in Ovar and “Noite de Carnaval” in Estarreja and Famalicão, there will be special trains running.

There is also a 2 euros special fare available for return journeys, in all Oporto Urban network and these tickets can be purchased until March 3.

CP recommends the use of the Intercidades, Regionais, InterRegionais and Coimbra Urban trains to get to the celebrations of Barcelos, Mealhada, Nelas, Canas de Senhorim, Figueira da Foz, Buarcos and Torres Vedras without having to worry about transit or parking your car, benefiting from the discounts in force.
