2004: The Start of Operations for a Metro Station Near Portugal’s Capital City

March 27, 2004

Odivelas station on the Yellow Line of the Lisbon Metro, the rapid transit system operating in the metropolitan area centered on Portugal’s capital city, first went into service. This station, which is in the city and municipality of Odivelas (northwest of Lisbon), was one of five Yellow Line stations opened on the same date. Those other stops were the Senhor Roubado, Ameixoeira, Lumiar, and Quinta das Conchas stations.

Odivelas station is the northern terminus for the Yellow Line. This station was designed by Portuguese architect Paulo Brito da Silva.

The Yellow Line (also known as the Sunflower Line) has a total of 13 stations and covers 6.8 miles (11 kilometers) altogether. It is one of four lines serving the Lisbon Metro.
