i04: BRT Boavista – Imperio (66 M€)
The implementation of the Single Pass in the Porto Metropolitan Area and the growing economic and tourist dynamics of Porto have led to an increase in demand for existing transport facilities, which puts more pressure on the transport system, therefore justifying an increase in supply through the expansion of the Porto Metro network.
The proposed investment, which will be carried out by Metro do Porto, SA, consists of a new public transport line on its own site, with an extension of approximately 3.8 km, establishing the connection between Praça do Império and Praça Mouzinho de Albuquerque (Rotunda da Boavista), where its link with the Metro do Porto network will be guaranteed. It will operate on an exclusive track with stations/stops that are 30 m long with 3 m-wide side quays.
It will serve a well-established urban area of the city with high potential demand, and offers significant gains in terms of increased passengers for Porto’s public transport system. Clean, electric battery or hydrogen-powered vehicles will be used.
