To celebrate the anniversary of Companhia Carris de Ferro de Lisboa, on September 23, 2023, Museu da Carris will hold the CARRIS Classics Parade 2023, departing from Santo Amaro station at 10:30 am and 4 pm.

The route of the CARRIS Classics Parade 2023 will be between Santo Amaro Station and Algés, remembering the old Ribamar, destination of the first American cars and the first tramcars.

The CARRIS Classics Parade 2023 is the opportunity to go back to the beginning of the 20th century, aboard the Open Tramcar (Salão), no.  283, the Tramcar no. 330, the Tramcar no. 444 or the T1. Try out Tramcar no. 535, one of the first tramcars built by CARRIS workshops, or get to know Tramcar no. 802, which was in service in the city of Lisbon when tramcars were the public transport of preference. It may also be the occasion to discover the thematic Tramcars with traditional national elements – cork, Arraiolos and Madeira embroidery: nº713, nº744 and nº745.

In addition to the transports of the first half of the 20th century, this year the CARRIS Classics Parade features Bus no. 76, which despite the similarity with the first single-decker buses to arrive in Lisbon in 1940, only entered service in the 60s. The Bus no. 1001, from 1975, will be present again in the parade, being the most recent vehicle of the Carris Museum of this edition.
