Since last July 1st, the Porto Card. It also includes the Andante 3Z Porto. subscription, which allows young people aged between 13 and 18 to travel free of charge on Andante public transport, within a limit of three contiguous zones, subject to validation on all trips.
This subscription can only be loaded onto this card, the activation fee and the subscription fee being supported by the Municipality of Porto. Thus, a young person with tax domicile in the City, or who studies and resides in Porto, as per the above requirements, aged between 13 and 18 years (inclusive), can subscribe to the Porto Card. at any time (September, October or following months) and request membership of the Andante 13-18 service.

If they are 18 years old, even if the young person turns 19 in the month following membership, they can continue to travel free of charge until 30 September 2022.
We also take this opportunity to highlight "Study in Porto", an online information platform aimed at all young people who intend to study in the city.
Students interested in following their academic path in the city of Porto will find at studyinporto.pt a set of useful information (in Portuguese and English), capable of helping their integration process.
