In the Public Troughfare
Pedestrians must NEVER walk along the Metro do Porto line.
The train is extremely quiet and, therefore, pedestrians may not hear its approach.
If it is necessary to cross the Metro line, ALWAYS do so at the pedestrian crossings designated for this purpose. Before crossing the line, check that no train is approaching.
If it is necessary to cross the line close to a station where a Metro do Porto train is stopped, ALWAYS cross the line behind the train and NEVER in front of it.
NEVER step in front of a moving train. In spite of their excellent braking capability, the trains do not stop instantly.
In stations, ALWAYS remain behind the yellow line marked out on the ground.
If you witness an accident, press the emergency buttons present in all stations. The occurrence must then be communicated directly to the network control centre on the intercom. All stations are equipped with video surveillance systems.
