Transport across Portugal is well-developed and diversified, making it really easy to get around in whatever mode you choose. The road network is around 70,000km long, with around 3,000km of motorway connecting the country; there has been major development and investment in this network over the past 40 years. A relatively new four-lane auto-estrada (superhighway) connects Lisbon to Portal, and many more highways connect the largest towns and extend out to the borders and ports.
For those who can’t or don’t wish to drive around Portugal, there is also a strong rail and public transport network. Numerous types of trains and buses connect the major cities and towns, and are a relatively cheap way of travelling. The principal train operator in Portugal is Comboios de Portugal, and infrastructure is maintained by REFER.
