Oporto Metro

Four of the 5 Oporto Metro routes are based on a former railway with the addition of some French style street running and underground sections in the city centre. It is operated by 72 Strasbourg style low floor cars.
1. All tickets for the metro, trams and buses use the 'andante' smart card. These can be bought and reloaded by machines at metro stations. There are several fare zones and most metro routes run beyond the central zones. Tram drivers sell single rides for 1.45 Euros (95 cents plus 50 cents for the card).
2. A typical metro tram stop.
3. Street running in a pedestrianised street in Matosinhos.
4. Underground station.
