World Youth Day 2023
From August 1st to August 6th, Lisbon will be particularly active, receiving millions of visitors from around the world for World Youth Day.
WYD is a worldwide encounter with the Pope organised in a different country every three years.
This year the event will be hosted by Lisbon.
And whether you will take part in the special week or not, the celebration will surely impact your mobility as you keep traveling in town.
Lime is here to help you get around and understand the new riding restrictions during the period, while still avoiding traffic.
WYD Weekly Pass
During this particularly busy week, we know it will be very difficult to get around and to avoid traffic congestion.
The city will also be under greater restrictions to ensure the safety of millions of visitors and you won’t be able to ride everywhere as you please.
In order to make your life easier and not to rely on your car, we have launched a special pass for WYD week. Riding your Lime bike or e-scooter will be cheaper with our new weekly pass: 16.99€ for 200 minutes - only active from July 31st to August 7th.
From Monday 31st of July until Friday 4th of August
As the city gets ready to host WYD, we wanted to keep you in the loop about some important commuting updates from the Lisbon Council and how to make the most of your travels during this special week.
Certain areas in the city center will experience temporary commuting restrictions. Be aware you won’t be able to ride in
Terreiro do Paço;
Praça do Comércio;
Avenida da Liberdade;
Marquês do Pombal;
Parque Eduardo VII and around.
On Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th of August
During the weekend, you will face restrictions in Parque das Nações. Be aware that you will need to finish your ride before Oriente Station and Vasco da Gama shopping mall.
The city will be bustling with participants from around the world. Not everyone will be familiar with the Lisbon landscape and some of you might come all the way from the other side of the world to see the Pope. However, whether you are here for the celebrations or you’re a local very used to the city : ride responsibly, obey traffic rules, and be mindful of pedestrians and other riders. Together, we can create a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone.
