The parish of Beato will have “two new stations, for a total of 42 docks”, installed on Avenida Infante D. Henrique, spread across the Poente and Nascente HUB. In São Domingos de Benfica, two stations will be inaugurated, “one on Rua São Domingos de Benfica and the other on Rua Conde de Almoster”, with a total of 28 docks installed.
