Metro in Porto has been in operation since 2002, and it's already made up of 6 lines, marked from A to F. All lines meet at Trinidade station. An electronic ticket system called Andante is working, cards can be purchased and topped up in ticketing machines at metro stations.


Unfortunately, only three lines remained in Porto, lines 1, 18, and 22. Primarily they are operated for tourists, but also local people use it. Trams run from 9 AM until early evening.


Although the city center is served by metro lines, buses rule the outer suburbs of the city. Bus lines have 3-digit numbering, with the first digit standing for the direction of the bus (2 for West, 3 for North). Night buses are marked with 'M'.
