Lisboa viva card

What is Lisboa viva card?

 The Lisboa viva is a “smart card” which has an embedded chip and antenna, it works by approaching the card to a validator, at the stations access gates,  that reads and validates the data loaded in the  card. If the data is valid, the card gives  access to  all networks that have adopted this card – presently  Metro, Carris, CP, Transtejo and other transport operators.
