Airport to Hospital Sao Joao

What is the best way to get here by public transport? We will not be carrying much luggage as we are only staying 4 days...

Am I right in thinking we get the purple line to Trindade then swap onto the yellow line until its terminus?

Absolutely correct, couldn't be easier (or cheaper).

Did just that myself last November. If you are going to the IBIS SAO JOAO, don't stay on until the terminus, get off the at the stop called IPO, which is outside the hotel. It's the first open-air stop on yellow line. Walk into the shopping centre (not round the outside like I did first day!) and you will find a lift going directly up into the hotel reception but it is tucked away behind a coffee stall.

You can buy day and multi-ride passes at the ticket machine at the airport or from the sales office there if it is open. They're called ANDANTE and are valid on the buses as well. They are rechargeable ticket cards, so you save €0.50 on second and subsequent use. There is a zonal fare system, so your first journey from the airport will include all the zones you are likely to need and of course on the way back.

Hope that helps.
