Following the approval of the State Budget for 2024, starting on January 1, 2024, the gratuity of the Navegante Metropolitano travel pass for students aged between 4 and 23 will come into effect through the profiles 4_18 and sub23. This will allow all students up to 23 years of age to travel free of charge throughout the Lisbon metropolitan area.

The recharging of these free passes is available in the Metro sales system, provided that the holder has the 4_18 or sub23 profile updated on their personalized Navegante travel card. This monthly free recharge can be done at sale points and also at the vending machines on the Metro network, using the “Family/Ex Combatant, Free, Voucher” option. In the next menu, you should select the first option “Family/Ex Combatant, Free, Voucher” and then select the spatial validity “Metropolitan“.

Young people who do not yet have a personalized Navegante travel card should apply for the card through normal channels (sale points or online), presenting documentation if necessary. From 4 to 18 years old, it is sufficient to present an identification card proving that the age is under 19.

From 19 to 23 (inclusive), in addition to presenting your ID card, you will need to provide proof of school attendance by means of an enrolment declaration. This condition must be renewed annually.

Those who already have their personalized navigator card, but do not have an updated profile (4_18 or sub23) should go to the Customer Spaces at Marquês de Pombal and Campo Grande stations, to update their profile.

The criteria for this benefit are as follows:

  • All students aged 4 to 23, inclusive;
  • Young people from 4 to 18 years old, without the need to prove enrollment in an educational unit (as they attend compulsory education).
  • Young people from 19 to 23 years old, needing to prove that they are students by presenting an enrollment declaration, including students enrolled in medium or professional courses.
  • Access is extended to young people up to the age of 24 attending courses with an integrated study cycle, namely Architecture and Urbanism, Pharmaceutical Sciences, Medicine, Dentistry and Veterinary Medicine.
