With the arrival of Rede Expressos, which joins the other operators (Flixbus, Internorte, Lazara, Scotturb (Gipsyy), Socintarbus and Valpi), the Terminal Intermodal de Campanhã (TIC) will triple the supply of lines. Since this Tuesday, November 22nd, the Terminal will have more than 700 schedules. This means that, daily, about 40 thousand people will leave or arrive in Porto, via TIC. During peak hours, the Terminal will receive one bus per minute.
STCP-Serviços is aware that this increase in supply implies changes in the habits of both operators and passengers. In order to minimize the constraints that may arise, it has made some changes to the terminal, such as the creation of a pier reinforcement area, more routing signages and a reinforcement of the customer support team.
Assuming that the terminal management is evolutionary, all entities involved (Porto City Hall, STCP – Serviços, Manvia and operators) are working together to ensure that this movement causes the least inconvenience to passengers and that the experience for those arriving and departing from the Terminal is positive.
