Hi, my wife and I are visiting Lisbon to look at different areas around Lisbon for relocation.  Unfortunately our South African drivers licenses are not accepted by car rental companies and so we will need to use a mix of Uber and Public Transport to get around.

 

Does anyone know how available Uber is in Cascais and if there is public transport from Cascais to Lisbon?

 

Thank you!

Ian

There's a very regular train service between Cascais and Cais do Sodré -takes just over half an hour, trains at intervals of 12 minutes throughout the day and only a bit longer before 7am and after 10pm.

@ianmcshane we used Uber extensively all over Portugal, Lisbon, Cascais, Porto and Setubal. We found it cheaper than in the US, though some of the cars are a bit smaller, but that's true in general for Europe. Also, I believe Cascais has free public transport within the city.

Hello,
You can use Uber around Cascais area, and all over Lisbon greater area. Not a problem. 

In Cascais municipality (all area up to Sintra and Oeiras) you can have free access to public transport if you live, work or study within the municipality.
You just need to fill out some online forms and upload proof of residence/ work/ study and you can have acess to the public trabsports. You get a card and you can also have the app on your phone to access the transports.

Also, for all greater Lisbon area, you can have a monthly pass for 40€ / month (20€ if you are over 65), that allows you to use all public transports around - trains, buses, metro, boats, trams, etc. 
It is called Cartão Navegante / Lisboa Viva.

🙂

Ana

@anavieira  Is that 20E per month arrangement also available to visitors to Lisbon? By which I mean non residents. if so, how would I order such A pass?

@jeanne That pass is for residents (in Portugal) only.

You would have to go to a specific shop/metro/train station, fill in the forms, provide pictures, pay and wait a few days for the card, and then charge it/top it up.
