Lisbon to have €10, seven-day travel pass in April

Public transport in the Lisbon Metropolitan Area (AML) is to have a €10, seven-day travel pass in April to ensure a smooth change-over to the new metropolitan tariff system.

According to an AML statement, it will “approve the creation, during April and transiently to users with a 30-day card of the same month, of a card equivalent to the subway pass”.
According to the document, the travel pass will be valid for seven days, “to be effective after the expiry date of the 30-day card and is to start being sold from 8 April 2019 until the end of that month.”
The government and the mayors of the area on Monday are to sign contracts for a single pass in the 18 municipalities of AML, which is set to cost a maximum of €40.
This single pass will end hundreds of combined cards that currently exist for the use of collective transport and will have two settings: the ‘Navegante Municipal’ which will cost €30, allowing travel within each municipality, and the ‘Navegante Metropolitano’ which will cost €40, allowing travel throughout the metropolitan area.
The new card, which can be bought from 26 March, will be monthly (valid for one month from the first day).


Comments:

We are confused! Does the new E10 7-day travel card replace the E6.40 day travel card, or is it in addition to that card?
Does this new card include all travel in central Lisbon on metro, bus, tram, funicular and the Santa Justa lift?
Thanks for your help, Arthur
