Carristur – Inovação em Transportes Urbanos e Regionais is a company wholly-owned by Carris and which operates in three different sectors:
Carristur is the main open-top bus tour operator in Portugal, with a presence in seven of the country's most beautiful cities: Lisbon, Oporto, Funchal, São Miguel, Coimbra, Braga and Guimarães. Yellow Bus also provide Boat tours to explore our coats and rivers.
Cities as emblematic as these have an obligation to welcome visitors with open arms and excellent service. Aware of this, we have a modern fleet of vehicles so that your experience of the city can be as comfortable as possible. We provide hop on off tours that provide a different way to explore the city and we also provide the more exclusive and unique as well, such as the red and the green tram we run in Lisbon.
By means of the tours we operate, we aim to provide a unique experience to those who visit us, ensuring they discover the city's main points of interest, and the chance to uncover the “city's essence”, its sound, sights, smells and sensations.
Surpassing the expectations of those who visit us and being a responsible promoter of the cities where we operate are two commitments that we are proud to fulfill on a daily basis.
Carristur develops training and consultancy projects for companies working within the passenger and goods transport sector. In this way it contributes to raising levels of knowledge, developing new skills and motivating and enhancing company personnel such as drivers, foremen, administrative staff, instructors, technical and managerial staff and others.
The training products are the result of experience acquired over the years in several areas. The programs are adjusted to the needs of the customers by providing quality service and meeting their companies’ goals.
