2004, the network of meter from Lisbon left the geographical boundaries of the city. This fact necessitated the creation of a new tariff system based on zones. A system of urban crowns was established. The Lisbon itself would form the “Crown L” and another crown, “Crown 1”, would encompass the new stops of the meter, already outside the city limits.
A ticket for 1 zone it costs 0.80 euros and for 2 zones it costs 1.10. In addition, you can buy a card – called a chain – of 10 trips, for € 7.30 for 1 zone and € 10.40 for 2 zones. The schedule It is from 06:30 until 01:00 (except some stations that close at 21:30).
All entrances to the stops are marked by a red “M”. There is an amazing amount and variety of works of contemporary art at the stops. The most notable are “Entre Campos”, “Baixa-Chiado” and “Oriente”.
