The Metro system is the most convenient way to move around in Porto. Inside the city limits you need a Z2 ticket (0.85 € for 1 trip, 8.5 € for 11 trips, 3.00 € for all trips in the following 24h). The ticket, called Andante, is individual and needs to be validated at the entry of every station (the ticket is valid for one hour). The Andante ticket is also valid on the bus lines marked with the Andante sign. Please check STCP for details.
Taxis are not very expensive and within the city limits, the rates charged are those shown in the meter at the end of the ride. For other areas the fare is calculated at 0.35 € per km after leaving the city limits. Any tolls (round trip) are paid by the client. On Saturdays, Sundays and national holidays, and Monday to Friday between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m., a 20% additional rate applies to normal fares.
