How to get to Coina Portugal by train

The nearest train station to Coina is in Sete Rios, about 27 minutes away from the city centre. Trains are operated by Fertagus and cost $2 – $4 per ride. You can charge your Andante card here at any time, as well as buy tickets for buses and the metro. The ticket machines have a green banner and are easy to recognize. There are also staff on hand to help you. You can also purchase bus and metro tickets in the Mobility Center “Centro da Mobilidade” at Sao Bento.

Once the train is across the Tagus, a shabby area of shanties gives way to modern flats as the line enters the south bank. After two minutes the track veers left and passes a crowded cafe and news-stand at Fogueteiro station, which was the Fertagus terminus until 2004. From here it takes two more minutes to reach Pragal, where the Metro do Sul do Tejo tracks cross under the Fertagus ones.

Traveling by train in Lisbon costs the same as travelling by Metro, and children under 4 ride free with a parent or guardian. You can use your Viva Viagem card on all the trains operated by Fertagus and the Metro, as well as on some buses (including Carris), trams, and three of Lisbon’s funiculars. However, it is not valid on airport buses, or tourist routes like the hop-on-hop-off city tour. You can also purchase pre-paid cards that come with 5 or 10 trips.
