Abstract

NAVEGANTE: THE NEW PUBLIC TRANSPORT TARIFF SYSTEM FOR THE LISBON METROPOLITAN AREA.

Aiming at the transition to sustainable mobility and attraction of new public transport (PT) passengers, the Lisbon Metropolitan Area set out a new tariff system, allowing a simplification of the monthly passes available and a significant reduction of their prices. This has induced a substantial increase on the demand of both passes and ridership.
