The solution to reinforce the transport system with tourist buses offer was announced, in early November, by the Secretary of State for Mobility, Eduardo Pinheiro, who said that the Metropolitan Areas of Lisbon and Porto would have 1.5 million Euros for the acquisition of transport services.

"I believe that we can start this reinforcement in January", said the mayor of AMP, Eduardo Vítor Rodrigues.

The mayor stressed, however, that the increase in supply in public transport has been happening since September, with the costs being supported by the municipalities.

"We believe that this reinforcement can still be improved, especially during peak hours", he said, indicating that AMP will receive 750 thousand Euros from the Government to implement this solution.
