Carris buses and trams that travel through the city are also one of the symbols of Lisbon. This company was founded in 1872, and trams have long been the only means of transportation. Today, this company includes buses, trams and funiculars. Although Lisbon is a "city of yellow trams" and trams in general, today a small number of them travel through the city because buses and the subway have taken over the role of transportation. Although not so popular, trams are an attraction and riding them around the city is an unforgettable experience. Some of the old tram lines today connect parts of southern Lisbon. A return ticket for the tram costs € 2.85.
Bus and tram daily lines run from 5 in the morning to 11 in the evening, when the night lines of the same start working. Buses run all over the city, including the airport, but also the outskirts of the city, with its 151 buses. A one-way bus ticket costs € 1.80.
