João Crisóstomo, near to McDonald’s, in a big beige building in Saldanha (Accessible through yellow line by metro). This is the terminal for all intercity buses. Fast Rede Expressos buses also depart from this station.<br />Metro<br />The most favorable way to get around in Lisbon is, doubtlessly, Metro. Not because it is cheap and fast but also because metro stations allows one to enjoy its amazing artistic decoration.<br />Metro trains run every day from 6.00 a.m. until 1.00 a.m., costing a single journey to any station on the network € 0.80.

However, be aware, some taxi drivers - especially those from the airport are badly reputed and may charge you more than they are supposed to. Starting charge is €3.25 and the distance is metered from then on. When you suspect you are being over charged, ask taxi driver a receipt where you will find the taxi driver's name, route, the amount you have been charged and hour. With this document you can easily file a complaint. <br />To avoid these unpleasant situations and make sure that you are paying the right price in the taxi, buy a Taxi Voucher either at the Ask Me tourist office at the airport, Lisboa Welcome Center at Praça do Comércio or Palace Foz in Restauradores.

Drive carefully as there are some narrow corners and steep roads. Generally, Lisbon is quite a compact city.<br />Parking can be tricky in Lisbon and if it says " Estacionamento Proibido" then you are not allowed to park there.

At Lisbon international airport, there are also the firms such as Sixt, Budget, Avis, Hertz and Europcar. The airport is located 7 kilometres from the city centre, but you may find having a car very useful to get to where you wish to go, particularly when the public transport is not always the best option for out of town places like Estoril, Cascais and Sintra. Furthermore, having a car will always give you the freedom to explore more of the city. Please be aware that the speed limit is 120 kilometres per hour on the motorway. Out of peak hours, it only takes 15 minutes to get to the Lisbon city centre by car.<br />Aerobus & Aeroshuttle<br />Carristur’s Aerobus links the airport with the city centre and the main hotels.
