Service: Rodoviaria do Tejo

The other company available is the Rodoviaria do Tejo whose reference station in Lisbon is at Campo Grande station. As before, the options to reach this place are: taxi, bus number 783, metro. As you can see from Google Maps, getting to Campo Grande from the airport is more uncomfortable due to a more limited number of choices.

The easiest, most comfortable and fastest choice is bus 783 which will take you to your destination in about 30 minutes. We do not recommend the metro because it will take you on a very long outside tour that will take you a long time. At least 50 minutes.

The taxi is certainly the fastest option: about 10 minutes. The choice is yours.


Once you arrive at Campo Grande station, you will find an indication for buses whose tickets can be purchased online or directly on the car.
