HOW TO GET THERE BY METRO + BUS
Airport - Costa Caparica
In a nutshell: From the airport take the red and blue metro to Praça Espanha station. There you will find the bus stop of bus 161 to Costa da Caparica, which leaves every 30 minutes. More precisely: By metro take the red line from the airport to "S.Sebastião" and get off at the last stop: "S.Sebastião". There you take the blue line direction "Colegio Militar /Luz" and get off at the next stop "Praça Espanha". The Metro runs from 6:30 to 1:00. You have to buy an electronic card "viva viagem card" for 0,50€ at the vending machine and recharge it. One way costs about 1,40€. The bus 161 - of the company TST - to Costa Caparica stops at the small place for buses at the metro station and departs every 20-30min. The trip costs 3,25€, in the evening 4.10€ and cannot be paid with the "viva viagem", but has to be paid in the bus. The bus runs from 6h or 7h to 22h. So pay attention to your arrival and departure times when booking your flight!! Another possibility is to take the metro to Cais do Sodré (change in Alameda to green line) and take the boat to Cacilhas. The crossing costs 1,20€ and has to be paid with the "viva viagem card". The line runs from 5.30-1,40h and is therefore a possibility for early morning and late evening. Then it would go with TST bus line 135Rapido (7-20h) or 124 (5.30-1.20h) further to Costa da Caparica.
