Not only Heritage trams to see in Lisbon, Portugal for Transit interested People
Including lot’s of heritage tram lines, Lisbon also boosts a modern tram network that is using low-floor tram wagons which is much newer.
But that’s not all. If you are huge transit interested person and do have time when visiting Lisbon. Then I would recommend you to take a ferry from Cais Do Sodré in Lisbon centre to the southern Metro do Sul do Tejo light rail network system. This is a quite new light rail network that opened in 2007. It’s a big light rail network.
Just do not get confused with the Metro name. It is a light rail network, with low floor light rail wagons. Both of the lines starts at the harbour station named as Cacilhas.
It’s really interesting to see how areas that chooses to build tram or light rail networks, tends to have a happier life all in all. Either new or heritage. These street running trains makes it possible to create a better town to live in for sure.
