Arrival in Lisbon

From the Airport
Lisbon Airport is located about 5 km to the North of the IST area. You may use either the Airport bus or Taxi.

Aero-Bus: Take the Bus at the sidewalk near the Arrivals, and exit the bus at the "Avenida da República" bus stop. Aero-Bus runs every 20 minutes from 7 AM to 9 PM.
Cost is approximately 3 Euro, and travel time is 20-40 minutes depending on the traffic. It takes about 5-10 minutes walk from the bus stop to IST.

Taxi: Cost is around 8 -10 Euro (depending on the hour, and if luggage boot is used). Travel time is 15-30 min depending on the traffic. Hint: take the taxi at the Airport Departure side (instead of taking it at the Arrivals, where the taxis line up for some time hoping for a long ride; for this, you need to go one floor up). Most taxis are beige but some are black and green. All are metered.
