The COST Meeting location and the hotel areas can be reached by taxi. In the absence of traffic jams, a taxi from the airport to the COST Meeting place will have a cost around 7 € and it will take about 10 minutes. A slightly higher cost apply to the hotel locations. If you have luggage there will be an additional cost of 1,60 €.

Subway: from the Airport to Hotels

After exiting the airport, head to the subway station named “Aeroporto”. From there you will need to purchase, in the automatic vending machines, a “Viva Viagem” card, which costs 0,50 €. Charging it with one trip, costs plus 1,45 €. Note: a trip is defined as the act staring at entering a station and ending with the exit. When changing lines it still counts as one trip.


After purchasing the trip, head into the “Red Line” (Linha Vermelha) with the direction “S.Sebastião”. The trip will take around 25 minutes.

If your hotel is served by the “Green Line” (Linha Verde) change line at the “Alameda” station. For hotels served by the Yellow Line (Linha Amarela) change line (or exit) at the “Saldanha” station.

Subway: from Hotels to the Meeting Place

From the hotels served by the Yellow Line (Linha Amarela), take a train heading “Odivelas”. From the hotels served by the Green Line (Linha Verde), take a train heading “Telheiras”.  In both cases, exit the train at “Campo Grande” station.

After exiting the train, exit the Campo Grande station through the exit marked “Campo Grande/Museu da Cidade” and walk straight forward, passing under the freeway viaduct. The COST Meeting place is located a little ahead, at Building C1 of Faculdade de Ciências da Universidade de Lisboa.
