Share post:

Increased demand has led to lines being reinforced, especially at weekends.

From today, April 8, Metro do Porto will increase its offer in response to the continuous growth in demand, implementing a readjustment in the timetables of some of its main lines.

With the arrival of spring and increased demand from users, Metro do Porto has announced a reinforcement of its operation, which will come into effect this Monday, April 8th. This measure comes in response to the growing number of daily validations, which has been surpassing the records of previous years, approaching 300,000 on working days.

Among the changes announced, the Violet Line (E), better known as the ‘Airport Line’, will operate with double vehicles throughout the weekend, thus increasing capacity and comfort for passengers. On the Blue (A) and Orange (F) Lines, the service will also be reinforced at weekends from 1pm, in an effort to meet the growing demand at these times.

An additional highlight is the Orange Line, where on Sundays there will be three additional journeys from 8pm in the direction of Fânzeres, expanding the offer at times of lower frequency.

The new timetables, as well as detailed information on the operational reinforcements, will be available on Metro do Porto’s official website. The company also encourages passengers to consult the timetables of alternative transport, which may be adjusted in line with these changes.
