Transporte Público em Lisboa: «apenas aceitável»

The Best Public Transportation in Europe is in Munich, Poll Says

Munich has Europe’s best public transportation, according to a study published Tuesday. The survey, which covered 23 European cities, found that 9 offered only ‘‘acceptable’’ bus, streetcar and metro services.

The study was done by EuroTest, a group of automobile clubs in 15 nations led by the German auto club ADAC. It rated local public transportation on travel time, information, ease of transfer, costs, operating hours and access to bike and car parking.

Of the cities surveyed, only Munich rated ‘‘very good.’’ The survey found that public transit was ‘‘good’’ in 11 cities: Helsinki, Vienna, Prague, Hamburg, Copenhagen, Frankfurt, Barcelona, Leipzig, Cologne, Rome and Bern. It rated public transportation as only ‘‘acceptable’’ in Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam, Warsaw, Oslo, Lisbon, Madrid, London and Budapest. (March 3, 2010)

Nota: Lisboa não vai conseguir alterar os comportamentos de mobilidade insustentáveis (1 cidadão = 1 carro) com Transportes Públicos que são classificados como «apenas aceitáveis».
