viva viagem card Atlantic ferries

Next spring we're going to setubal and intend spending a day in Lisbon.

We will also be travelling to Troia and I know we need the viva viagem card for the ferry/catamaran.

It seems that for transport (public) to/from and in Lisbon the zapping option is the best bet but how does that combine with the ferry fare? or do we each need two viva viagem cards, one for the ferry and one for to/from and in Lisbon?

The ferry across from Troia to Setubal does not accept zapping or any other Lisbon travel card.

You will need to pay their fare of €3,75 to get to Setubal.

Neithrr, I believe, are Lisbon zapping tickets available for trains or buses from Setubal to Lisbon.

Where can you use zapping in Lisbon and Setúbal? You can use it at Fertagus (the train to/from Setúbal and Lisbon) which I recommend you, it cross the 25 de Abril bridge. Once in Lisbon you can use it at the buses, trams and funiculars (Carris) and Metro (subway). If you want to continue to Sintra or Cascais you can use it at the trains (CP). If you want to cross the river by boat to go to Almada and/or the Cristo-Rei you can use it (Transtejo/Soflusa). Here are info in english https:/…93-More-operators-and-new-conditions

I forgot that the Fertagus trains can now be used with a zapping pass. This was a recent change. Sorry.

Thanks cubsr and 64novpt for your replies. So it seems that one card for Troia and another for zapping in and around Lisboa would be best. Good to know that zapping is possible with Transtejo and Soflusa as we might take the hydrofoil from Seixal to Lisboa.

Thanks again.

You can also use zapping on a ferry from Lisbon (Terreiro do Paco) to Barreiro and the connecting train from Barreiro to Setubal.
