CP will maintain 100% of its offer of urban, regional and interregional trains, with changes to the Alfa Pendular, following the new period of confinement and taking into account its specificities, it was announced today.
In response to Lusa, a source for Comboios de Portugal, he said that, on Intercidades trains, the offer in force during the days of the week will continue, with some changes on the weekend.
Alfa Pendular trains, on the other hand, will have changes in their daily offer, and the details of the changes will be soon disclosed on CP’s communication channels, namely on the official website.
According to a CP source, this new offer plan goes into effect at 00:00 on the next Saturday and should be maintained during the next month, and may, “due to significant changes to the current containment rules, be reevaluated”.
The Celtic train will maintain its current offer, that is, a daily circulation per direction, while on Long-Distance trains, some circulations of Alfa Pendular trains are suspended.
Currently, and since May 2020, CP is carrying out its offer of trains at 100% percent in Urban, Regional and Inter-regional services, the source specified.
According to CP, within the scope of the COVID Contingency Plan, the company maintains all hygiene and disinfection actions for its trains and facilities.

Since the first confinement, between March and April 2020, public transport has reduced its capacity by 1/3 to avoid the accumulation of people and to allow social distance, in addition to the mandatory use of masks.
Buses have a driver’s cabin and disinfectant gel dispensers, while taxis and TVDE have been advised to have a partition between the driver and the rear where passengers travel, with transportation in the front seat not allowed.
