How to get there


From Lisbon Airport (Portela) to IST Alameda campus is a 10 minutes’ drive. Lisbon Airport is very close to the city centre – it is located 7km from the centre – and there are different alternatives to get there, namely by Metro to Aerobus, city bus (Carris) or by taxi.If you choose the metro to go from the airport straight to IST, you have the red line (linha vermelha) and you should exit in Alameda or Saldanha station. It takes around 15 to 20 minutes and costs €1,25 plus €0,50 for the “viva viagem” rechargeable card.

Taxis allow you to arrive at IST from any point in the city, but of course the tariff also increases according to the distance, traffic and day time. An airport-IST trip is around 10 euros. It is possible to buy “taxi vouchers” at the airport from €20 to €25.
