Carris provides the tram bus and funicular service in Lisbon, the only remaining tram barn is also home to the museum.

The Ponte 25 de Abril bridge passes directly over the museum' traverser. The bottom deck is rail and the upper deck is road.
Veiw of the bridge from the top of Cristo Rei

Transtejo operate some of the ferries [rust buckets] that are the alternative to the road /rail bridge.

In those first pics, didn't some of those cars end up in tourist service here in the US?

Yakima Valley Transit had/has a pair of cars that originated in Lisbon and were sent to Yakima in time for US Bicentennial celebrations.

The Yakima cars came from Oporto.  Oporto cars are standard gauge, Lisbon cars are 900 mm gauge.  We also have one of the Oporto cars here in San Jose at History Park.
