The Caixa Geral de Depósitos bank and OTLIS have launched the first debit card that lets you automatically pay your trips on the Lisbon Metropolitan area transports.
This innovative card lets you automatically pay for trips on the Lisbon Metropolitan area transports (CP, Metro, Carris, Transtejo/Soflusa and Fertagus). All you have to do is swipe your card over the card reader. No queues, no change and no top-ups. Quick and easy.
CP Services: Lisbon urban trains
On Lisbon urban trains, passengers get the same conditions as with Zapping. If you want to use this card, you have to validate it at a card reader or access channel and €1.90 will be deducted from your bank account.
Once validated, you can travel in either direction an unlimited number of times for 90 minutes, though you still have another 30 minutes to end your journey, (but you cannot change trains or re-enter the stations in this time).
You can see the time that is left by swiping your card across a ticket vending machine or at any Lisbon urban ticket office.
