The extension of the free of charge “Andante 13-18” intermodal transport ticket in Porto benefitted, last year, 4700 young people. The subscription renewal, which combines the non-chargeable principle to the benefits of the Porto. card, is ongoing until 31 August.
People aged between 13 and 18 years old, who do not have the “Andante 13-18” transport ticket, can load an "Andante 3Z Porto." subscription, of the public transport Andante network, at no charge, and with added benefits of the Porto. card, such as discounts and perks in different equipment in the city. The loading of subscriptions runs from 1 July to 31 August.
The "Andante 3Z Porto." is a free Andante subscription, offered by the Municipality of Porto, to young people with a tax residence in Porto and to students that show proof they are studying and residing in Porto, aged between 13 and 18 years old, which grants them the possibility to use public transports, namely Metro, STCP (BUS) or the Funicular of the Guindais, up to a limit of three adjacent zones.
It is quite correct to affirm that the Porto. card will bring the city together: Card holders will not only improve their daily experience in the city of Porto, but also establish a sense of belonging in the Invicta, with perks regarding attending cultural events promoted by the City Hall, access to municipal pools and to municipal library’s services, not to mention guided tours to the Council Chambers, just to mention a few, and now the integration of the andante 13.18. in the "Card Porto.".
The card is free of charge, but it is necessary to select the services one wishes to adhere. In the school year 2020/21 the Andante 13-18 benefited 4.715 young people.
The Andante card must be activated in a Loja Andante, where users will also be able to select the three adjacent zones. For Andante subscription renewal, card holders must go directly to the Loja Andante in Trindade, and present their former subscription card, as well as the citizen card. Subscription requests for youngsters aged between 13 and 15 years old must be submitted by the respective guardian.
