The Municipality of Cascais is dedicated to promoting the most sustainable development of its territory and environmentally friendly urban mobility.
In 2016, the Municipality launched the integrated sustainable mobility management system called MobiCascais. This system is based on a platform that combines different operators and a network of infrastructures and equipment to offer a diverse and flexible set of mobility solutions and services that meet the needs of Cascais’s residents, workers, and visitors.
The main activities being developed in the Municipality of Cascais are aimed at promoting public transport. These measures are complemented by promoting soft mobility and public space regeneration through the supply of new services (shared leisure bicycles, bike sharing, scooter sharing and bike parking) and the developing of new bicycle paths. MobiCascais also integrates parking management, which is decisive for modal choice. To encourage the use of the train, parking facilities were also implemented near the train stations. Other modes of transport are also being integrated, such as car sharing, transport of non-urgent patients, school transport and flexible transport on-demand.
A control centre of operations manages the MobiCascais system, Cascais Cockpit, that provides the integrated operational management of mobility in real-time. These actions have allowed Cascais to be the first MaaS experience in Portugal.
Furthermore, in January 2020, Cascais implemented the Free Mobility Program. This initiative was a bold measure and allowed residents, students, and workers of the Municipality to have free access to municipal buses and shared bicycles. For all these reasons, we invite you to visit us at Cascais. Feel FREE to ride on our modern buses, try our bikes and scooters, and enjoy our wonderful landscapes.
