The terminal station of the line - Guimarães includes the basic services of transport. Connection to buses (urban or suburban transport) is solid but there is no - as usually in Portugal - timetable or network map in the bus stop. Bit several timetables are in the station building. There is also a taxi rank in front of the station, parking place contains about 90 places.

The station consists of four tracks. They are used mainly during night because 1st platform is used by the IC train Guimarães-Lisbon-Guimarães. But during day suburban trains leave from the 1st platform that is the closest to the main building.

The station building contains these services:

  • café
  • newspaper agent
  • free internet kiosks
  • ticket machines
  • ticket office

The station is located at the edge of the town but distance station-centre is not long. Most of the passengers use to go on foot to the centre. Bus is usually used by passengers who want to travel further than just to the town. Disadvantage of Guimarães station is bad connection to the bus terminal which is placed next to the GuimarãeShopping centre (see the second picture below).

The line used to continue to Fafe (more in History page) but this branch was closed during 80´s. People can now use the "line" for bicycle trips, there is an asphalth surface instead of railway track.
