Metro Transportes do Sul
Founded 2007

The services provided by Metro Transportes do Sul extend from Almada into Seixal on the stretch between Santa Amaro and Corroios (1,4km with additional 1,3km of service track). Also the depot of the system is located in Seixal.

The original project from 1995 for the Metro Transportes do Sul tram system centered in Almada saw the currently southward line ending at Corroios extend through the center of Seixal and Barreiro and end in Moita. This extension was supposed to rebuild the old Seixal railway bridge which got destroyed in 1969 after a collision with a ferry, thus separating the neighbouring cities.

The extension project has once again resurfaced in 2024 with a possible extenston towards Costa da Caparica (to the west), but also a new proposal for expansion towards east. First eastwards expansion phase would start at Corroios and go through the central area of Seixal, central area of Barreiro and finish at Alhos Vedros. This phase could be either LRT or BRT. Second phase (BRT only) would start at Alhos Vedros and go through central area of Moita and further towards Montijo and Alochete.

See a map of the original project (from 1995) and proposal from 2024 here.

Electric buses

Carris Metropolitana
Founded April 1, 2022

Carris Metropolitana provides bus services on city and inter-municipal routes in Seixal with electric and regular buses (no special electric bus routes).

In Seixal Transportes Sul do Tejo (based in Almada) operates under the Carris Metropolitana brand.

Routes in Seixal municipality are 31xx, 35xx, 36xx and 37xx.

Carris Metropolitana route numbers always have 4 digits which help identify the type of route. First digit always indicates area (Barreiro is not part of any Carris Metropolitana area, as the city bus routes are serviced by an independent operator). Second digit inicates the type: city route (0-4, usually indicting one of the major cities in the area), inter-municipality route within same area (5) inter-municipality route to different area (6), routes to Lisbon (7-8), routes that go outside the Lisbon metropolitan area (9). Last two digits are simply the route number.

Câmara Municipal do Seixal
(municipality owned)

Seixal ON is a project launched in March 2020 with the aim to adopt a set of policies and local intervention strategies, oriented towards the principles defined for Sustainable Cities, and one of the main challenges today is related to the fight against climate change, namely the reduction of Greenhouse Gases.

In the scope of this project, in 2021 the city council bought two Karsan Jest Electric minibuses. Both of them have only been used for city council purposes (for example, transporting people to COVID-19 vaccinations) and have never been used for public transport. With Transportes Sul do Tejo and Alsa Todi providing bus services on city and inter-city routes (since 2023 also with electric buses), it is un clear if the fleet owned by city council will expand or if they will ever be used for public transport.

Other types of electric public transport
