By the end of 2020 it should be possible to pay and validate the entrance on public transport in the Lisbon Metropolitan Area with only the mobile phone, the "Expresso" newspaper reported Saturday.

According to the weekly, the project represents an investment of 21 million euros, the amount of which is co-financed by the European Commission.

The transformation of the ticketing system does not mean, however, the disappearance of the pass and paper tickets, but rather a complement to the current system.

"The difference is that there is now another access channel and more information for the user," says Miguel Gaspar, councilor of Mobility at the Lisbon City Council in statements to Expresso.
