Are you familiar with the 1001 bus?

The 1001 Bus is in perfect working order and is driven by a CARRIS driver. The bus carries didactic material and a team of monitors from the Educational Service. 

In this pilot year, this bus offers two activities for two age ranges, and may in the future provide five workshop visits at schools. It parks inside the space of the visiting entity, in an uncovered or covered area. 

This year, as the project has just been launched, we have estimated an availability of about 3 days each month, taking into account the school calendar and school breaks.

Just a little bit of history…

The introduction to service of the 1001 bus in 1975 marks the beginning of a restructuring process at CARRIS, in which the chromatic scheme of its vehicles was also changed, with the entire fleet now being painted in orange. This bus, which was then assigned to the Cabo Ruivo Station, provided regular passenger service until 2000. It was then taken out of service and introduced to the Museum, following the museums incorporation policy that establishes that the first bus of each series be integrated into its collection. The bus underwent a major restoration process from 2014 to 2019.

Activities provided

Each bus visit can allow the development of up to 5 activities at the school, including the morning and afternoon periods.

Thus, we were able to receive 5 classes.

The bus will not used to travel!   

The bus will be parked in the school grounds, preferably in an indoor sports hall or outdoor sports field.

Each activity lasts about 1 hour. And you can choose between two activities.


Once upon a time… a tour of the CARRIS Museum. The doors of CARRIS open and our book transports you to a museum tour full of fantasy, drawings and interaction. The CARRIS book is a complement to the guided tour that proposes that the story be valued as an imaginary space. The group is invited to relate, in a participatory and dynamic way, the Museum’s collection to an illustrated narrative.

Magic Windows

In the tour of the Museum, we will discover the history of CARRIS transport system and the emblematic figures that were part of it. We will discover that this narrative has spread to different countries, from Brazil to London, by land and sea.  

In this playful workshop, we will draw a cartoon on the windows of a yellow bus with “magic” markers. With imagination, because “a tale never loses in the telling”. Let’s start coloring!

Ages: 6-12 years

Price: 5.5€ children

Duration: 1 hour

Number of Children: 15-25

We will get to know a few things about CARRIS and also about traffic signs, precautions to be taken in road/pedestrian traffic and, of course, the good practices that we must adopt in public transport. We can seize the opportunity to make a mini circuit at the school in order to rehearse some of the rules we have learned. At the end, each team (divided class) will take a quiz that challenges their “gray matter and we will check if the subject has been learned! At the end of the challenge, each team captain will win a medal and a certificate. 

Ages: 8-14 years
