Subsidised Lisbon family travel pass now available

Greater Lisbon’s new family travel pass, Navegante Família, can now be requested from service counters of transport operators involved or from portalviva.pt.

The Navegante Família pass, (for travel within one district or metropolitan area and for travel throughout all the districts of greater Lisbon) allows three or more family members, with proven residence in one of the 18 districts of greater Lisbon, to pay, at most, the value of two metropolitan passes (€80 monthly).


If the pass is for municipal Navegante Família, involving travel within only one district, the cost is €60.


In order to obtain the Navegante Família pass, the applicant and his/her extended family - ascendants, descendants and relatives (spouse or unmarried partner, grandfather, grandmother, father, mother, father-in-law, mother-in-law, children, grandchildren and guardians) are considered members of the same household.


However, all members of the household must have a Lisboa VIVA public transport pass.


Requests for the new Navegante Família pass may take up to 10 days to process.


Relief in the prices of public transport began to be felt on 1 April, as part of the Tariff Reduction Programme, a measure that aims to reduce the use of individual transport.


A metropolitan pass was created, which allows travel throughout all districts of greater Lisbon for a maximum cost of €40 per month, and a municipal pass for those travelling within only one district, which costs €30.
