STCP bus fleet in Porto will adjust its service offer on weekends, as has happened on business days, to accommodate the measures taken under the renovation of the State of Emergency. The “Contingency Timetable” enters into force on 27th February, and will remain in place as long as the restriction measures of this second confinement are in force, namely the ban on movement in public areas and roads, and between districts, after 5 pm.
Thus, and in accordance with the slump in demand, on weekends, the majority of daytime lines will gradually reduce service offer, after 5 pm (Lines 207, 208, 209, 304, 403, 503, 900 and ZC).
Lines 206, 302, 303, 601, 603, 604, 700, 703, 705, 706, 803, 804, 805, 806 maintain the current timetable, as the lines operating the Dawn Network.
The level of demand for bus services is declining on Saturdays and Sundays, owing to this second lockdown; thus, the company will adjust offer to demand, by reducing 19% in the number of operating buses.
