Oriente bus terminal is part of the Oriente station complex in the north-east of Lisbon, which also contains Oriente train and metro stations and Vasco de Gama shopping centre. It is one of Lisbon’s two main long-distance bus stations (the other is Sete Rios).
Oriente Bus Station Location
Oriente Station is very big (it is the busiest station in Portugal by passenger count), but it is very modern and well-designed, so navigation around the place should not be a problem. The bus station is situated in the western part of the complex, the train station (and metro station) in the middle, and Vasco de Gama shopping centre in the east.
Buses can enter the station from either northern (Via Reciproca) or southern side (Avenida Berlim). The main street passing the train station on the eastern side (between the station and the shopping centre) is Avenida Dom Joao II. The river Tagus is further to the east, behind the shopping centre.
