Transportation

 

Match Transportation

For teams purchasing the IberCup Accommodation Package

Traveling via train is the easiest way to get around the Cascais Coast. Most of the football complexes have a nearby train station and all the participants can use the IberPass to travel between the accommodations and these facilities.


The train line crosses the Cascais Coast and offers a secure and pleasant trip with the Atlantic ocean as scenery, and operate every 15 minutes. Other football complexes have conection via public bus and the tram system.

 

The IberPass gives you free access to the public transport system.

All the participating teams need to make sure if their accommodation option has free access to public transportation. The IberPass is included in the accommodation package for all participants. This gives free access to the public train transportation between Cascais and Lisbon. 

Other public transport systems such as Buscas and Scotturb, make the connections between train stations and football complexes. For Buscas and Scotturb all the participants must use the green card "Viva Viagem".


The Ibercard will not give you access to both of these options. In 90% of the accommodation options, teams can use the public transportation network to go to the matches.
