Lisbon - public transport, a couple of questions

Jump to last reply

I will be a week in Lisbon with friends in mid-September, and I still have some questions re. public transport.

So far I understood (hopefully) that I want one of the Viva Viagem plastic cards that can be loaded with cash value (zapping) or day passes or single fares good for one hour. And that those options cannot be mixed on one card.

Am I right that there is no weekly pass, just day passes and 30 day passes?

The elevators seem to be more costly when you get individual tickets. But are they included in day passes or count as just one regular ride when I use the Zapping option?

When you use the Viva Viagem card, do you just need to "check in" when you get on a tram, bus, or metro - or do you also need to "check-out"?

Any other advice is also greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
