  • There will be a shuttle bus service (based on the expected IAMCR participants’ flows) from the airport to hotels in Braga.

  • If you want to take public transport to Braga, the best option is to combine metro and train. At the airport, you should take the Metro line E (violet) directly to Campanhã (train station in OPorto).  This trip should cost you around 2€. In Campanhã, you can get a train to Braga (Braga centre is the very last stop).  Prices vary from 2,5 € up to 12 (fast trains are the most expensive)

  • The fastest option (there is a highway) to get to Braga is by taxi (right outside the airport) but it costs around 55/60€ (there are extra-chargers for luggage, night hours and weekends/bank holidays). You can try to find someone to share the drive at the IAMCR desk at the airport.  If you need a receipt, try "recibo, por favor".

  • There are also fast trains between Lisbon and Braga (stopping in Oporto). It takes around 3,5 hours (350km).

  • In Braga, there is a bus network covering the entire city. However, in order to respond to specific conference needs, there will be routes designed according to the conference flows.

  • A taxi ride from central Braga and Bom Jesus/Sameiro (where most hotels are located) to the University Campus (where the conference will take place) costs around 5€.
