    If you do not arrive in a car to the top of Bom Jesus, nor do you wish to hike up the stairs, then you can take the tram. Amazingly enough the tram is run on a water weight system where it fills with water to counter the weight of the opposite car and its passengers, causing it to fall towards the bottom where the water is then let out and the cycle reversed.
    The first to be installed in Portugal in 1882 it races up the 300-metre slope in just 3 minutes.

    From and to Oporto Airport from Braga

    by Pedro_Laia Written Sep 24, 2010

    Hi.
    I think the best option (and cheaper), would be to get Metro and Train.
    Metro - take line "E" from Airpot till "Campanha" (in Oporto center).
    Train - from "Campanha" to Braga.
    It will take around 2 hours, and 20 euros would be enough.
    Check the links for further information:

    Elevador do Bom Jesus

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you want to visit Bom Jesus Sanctuary, you can take the bus and once you get there and if you are too tired to climb the baroque stairway, you can take the elevador do Bom Jesus(Elevator).
    The up/down ride costs you 2,00 Euros.

    Bus service Braga and Guimaraes

    by cubsur Updated Aug 31, 2008

    I have a timetable for the Braga - Guimarães local buses which I obtained on a visit last year. I have also never found it on a website.

    These buses are operated by a consortium of three companies and I have put the timetable on a webpage at this location:

    http://thomasallen.home.sapo.pt/travel/054.htm

    This timetable was correct in November 2007. I do not know if it has changed. I suggest you check at the Braga bus station before travel.

    You can use the same ticket on any bus of any of the three companies.

    Braga is just a bit over an hour away from Porto, therfore, it's very recommendable a day trip.

    - From Porto: São Bento railway station (Praça Almeida Garret; metro: São Bento, line D/yellow) or Campanhã (metro: lines A, B, C and E), and take Braga urban (urbanos) linha/line.

    Avenida Central (Braga, Portugal)

    Once in Braga, you don't need any other mean of transportation but your feet. All sights are very close but the Santuário do Bom Jesus do Monte.
