Taxis allow you to arrive at ISR from any point in the city, but of course the tariff also increases according to the distance, traffic and day time. An airport-ISR trip is around 10 euros.
From Lisbon Airport (Portela) to IST Alameda campus is a 10 minutes’ drive. Lisbon Airport is very close to the city centre – it is located 7km from the centre – and there are different alternatives to get there, namely by Metro to Aerobus, city bus (Carris) or by taxi.
