Unlimited travel on regional trains in Portugal for only €49/month!

Portugal adopts the monthly train ticket at 49 euros

After Germany, it was Portugal’s turn to take a new step in democratizing rail transport. The Iberian country has announced the launch of a subscription at 49 euros per month. This pass allows unlimited travel on the entire Portuguese regional train network.

A new way to stimulate the local economy

The one-ticket ticket initiative is part of Portugal’s broader efforts to encourage mobility within the country. By making exploring the regions more accessible to residents, the Portuguese government hopes to boost the local economy. In fact, this new IPO can promote domestic tourism, thus improving the conditions for the development of domestic small and medium-sized businesses.

In addition, this subscription can also facilitate the mobility of workers. Thus they will be able to get to their place of work more easily, even if they live at a reasonable distance.

A step towards sustainability

This new card could help significantly reduce the country’s carbon footprint. Thus, Portugal reinforces its commitment to sustainability by encouraging its citizens to opt for the train, which is a mode of transport that emits fewer greenhouse gases compared to other modes of transport.

Making rail transport more accessible can also reduce traffic congestion. This would benefit the air quality and quality of life of residents, especially in densely populated urban areas.

There is no doubt that this Portuguese initiative will be closely watched by other European countries. The results obtained may serve as a model for similar initiatives across the continent. As always, the success of this project will depend on the massive adoption of this new corridor by the population and the economic benefits it can generate.
