Train from Lison to Operto

by yvr Online Now Mar 3, 2013 at 7:26 AM

Can not find an update on this in the travel guide. Is it necessary to purchase tickets a few days ahead of time for better prices? I know I can do it on-line but would prefer to purchase at the station a couple of days in advance.

thanks

    Hi,

    The prices don't change so you don't need to worry on purchasing them in advance. You can see the schedule online and purchase them whenever you want in a station (Sete Rios, Santa Apolónia, Rossio, Oriente, Entre campos).

    No need to purchase tix on line unless you'd prefer it really.  Just go to the station a day or two early and it's all you need to secure it.  And if for any reason you'd find yourself with time and unable to do it early,  then a good idea to start out early in the day and be at the station literally.  My own experience has been the latter when I'd get to the railway station a few hours before my chosen train to purchase the tix...and I've never had any problem.

    You also can buy train tickets in ATM machines.

    You don't have to pick the tickers earlier, the price is the same.
    Just check in the web site the schedules:
    Notice that in Lisbon there are 3 train stations: Lisboa-Entrecampos, Lisboa-Santa Apolónia and Lisboa-Oriente.
    In Porto the train station is named Campanha.
