Portugal is launching an interoperable Single Transport Card called “1Bilhete.pt”. The card, that will allow passengers to use all types of public transport throughout Portugal, will be operational in Coimbra for a trial period.


The 1Bilhete.pt Single Transport Card will be linked to a national intermodal ticketing platform that will require an investment of EUR 2.7 million since each region has its own rates and a different system. Currently, people use a system that is not interoperable, whether they use a card or an app.


The new platform that will be developed will integrate products and rates, with interoperability between the ticketing systems of Porto and Lisbon. This will require investment in technology, namely for selling and loading cards from different regions, as well as developing a new smartphone app. A smartphone will be used to load physical transport cards from different transport networks and it is expected that this new function will be operational in 2024.


With reference to ticketing linked to debit and credit cards, a reference architecture will be designed and certified in 2024 for public procurement for each region.
