Weekends and public holidays in December with €2 journeys - Lisbon, Oporto and Coimbra urban trains

December is a month when many families travel into the main urban centres for Christmas shopping and to see the Christmas decorations. CP - Comboios de Portugal, as in previous years, is launching a special fare to help reduce the cost of these journeys.

Therefore, on 8, 9, 10, 16, 17, 23, 24, 25, 30 and 31 December there will be a special €2 fare on all the Lisbon, Oporto and Coimbra urban services for return shopping trips. The Oporto urban trains will also have 45,000 more seats those days.

The close ness of the stations to the main shopping zones and the fact that traffic is usually complicated at this season are good reasons to take the train as it is quick and convenient.
