Mapping the Lisbon Tram 28 route

Trying to figure out whether Tram 28 is going to take you where you want to visit in Lisbon? Now you can see the route on an interactive Google Map.

At some point, most visitors to Lisbon will have been on the legendary no. 28 yellow trams which run from Martim Moniz to Campo de Ourique (Prazeres), climbing many incredibly steep slopes and negotiating numerous impossibly tight street corners.


While the Transportes de Lisboa site provides information on the Tram 28 stops, the map downloadable from the page is sadly not terribly useful for visitors who are not acquainted with the maze that is the winding streets of Lisbon. For example, the map does not show easily recognisable metro stations or street names. We wanted to travel to the Campo de Santa Clara flea market (open Tuesdays and Saturdays) but the map did not really give us a good idea of how easy it would be to get there by Tram 28. So I naturally googled to see whether there was an interactive online map of the Tram 28 route, and I found none.

Coming back home, I decided to create one.

Explore the famous Tram 28 route on Google Map, where you can search for places and access Street View, etc. I hope future visitors to Lisbon will find this little map useful.

(I used http://www.plotaroute.com/ to plot the route, and to extract the coordinates in KML format, before overlaying the route on top of Google Map)
