Public transportation in Lisbon
Public transport is good, but not excellent. To ride the metro, trams, buses and trains you’ll need a reusable VivaViagem card. This card is available at any station or some stationary stores, it comes in two versions: per ticket or zapping version. The per ticket version, you basically buy a ticket first for the transportation you want (bus, metro, train, etc), the zapping version you only fill it with money, this credit is valid in any combination of public transport. There’s also a 24H day multi-transport pass, which pays itself after 3 bus/tram rides.
Other ways of getting around
You’ll see many tuk-tuks around that can be used as unconventional way of transportation but this comes with a much higher cost.
Also you can always use Taxis, Uber and Cabify are becoming extremely available.
