It is important to note that passengers are only allowed one small piece of hand luggage each on Carris Coach services. Passengers with large travel bags and /or suitcases should take the Aerobus services from the airport, as these Lisbon Airport buses have the required luggage racks for larger pieces of luggage.
Several of the main train stations and the most important Metro train stations in the city have bus terminals from which passengers can board onward buses to some of the suburbs and to towns like Cascais, Sintra, Coimbra and Fatima. Roma and Areeriro and the aforementioned Marquês Pompal Metro station are such places, where Carris Coach services leave from just outside the Metro stations.

Carris Coach and Tram operators have their own museum, which celebrated its 13th anniversary this year. The cheerful, bright yellow trams are a hit with children of all ages, while bus models of yesterday conjure up visions of ladies wearing enormous Edwardian hats and whiskered gentlemen reading their newspapers on their way to work.
Carris buses and trams began their long association with the city in 1901, when the first trams startled rattling through the narrow streets. The present design originated in the 1960s, when it was decided that the city’s trams and buses should reflect “modern” times to attract more tourists. Original exhibits include horse-drawn buses and trams from the beginning of the public transport era as well as many to scale models in glass cabinets that undoubtedly would make any model collector proud.
The museum is located at the Carris depot on Santo Amaro on May 1st Street no. 101 to 103 in Lisbon and the entrance fee is just EUR 2.50 per person, although cost savings with family cards are available and discounts with a Lisboa card make the visit even more enjoyable.
