Reduced road transport at AMLisboa during the closure of schools – Transport

In a statement, AML announced that the Government’s decision to close all school establishments as of today “will imply the natural taking of adjustment measures regarding the public transport services provided” at AML, which will be provisional and adjusted to the demand and “security needs, given the current pandemic situation”.

The transport offer will be adjusted to that corresponding to the non-school period, “according to the specific reality of each career”, he stressed.

AML stressed that, as a transport authority, it will articulate with operators “to identify which essential public transport services will need to remain in operation”.

Operators must, “if necessary, proceed with the readjustment and deployment of services, in order to ensure the supply in periods of greatest demand, such as the morning and afternoon rush hour”, he added.

They should also take into account transportation alternatives in all locations, “with special attention to those that do not have other transportation alternatives outside the school period” and to careers that serve health equipment, namely hospitals.

AML also stressed that a maximum of two thirds of the vehicle’s capacity for passenger transport will continue to be safeguarded, as well as the hygiene measures provided for in the contingency plan.

The concrete adjustments to the schedules can be consulted on the websites and other communication channels of the operators Rodoviária de Lisboa, TST -Transportes Sul do Tejo, Scotturb, Vimeca, Isidoro Duarte, JJ Santo António, Henrique Leonardo Mota and Barraqueiro – Boa Viagem and Barraqueiro – Mafrense.

Prime Minister António Costa on Thursday announced the closure of schools at all levels of education for 15 days, starting today, to try to stop contagions from the coronavirus first detected in late December 2019, in Wuhan, a city in central China.

According to the most recent bulletin from the Directorate-General for Health, 9,686 people diagnosed with covid-19 died in Portugal, of the 595,149 confirmed infection cases.
