updating this thread with current information

I can add some additional information based on my recent stopover.......
The one day transit card now costs 6.4 euros. In addition, you need to pay 1.2 a euro for the card i.e. 6. 90 euros for 24 h. Important to note the 24 h starts when the card is first validated. I took the metro to a dedicated airport station. Not sure if this operates on weekends?
Note the transit pass is also good for Belem (I took the #15 bus), As well, the transit card covers trams - incl. the old ones which go into Alfama - #'s 12, 15 & 28.
Lisbon has just completed a massive new cruise ship terminal - in anticipation of more & bigger cruise ship operations in the years to come.
A final point of reference. Elsewhere on FT, members have noted that Lisbon is one of the most affordable capitals in Equrope. I agree. IME, a budget of 100 euros per day is sufficient.

It does.

Belém is a neighborhood of Lisbon, so the pass definitely covers it. It also covers the metro, buses, trams, funiculars and the elevator.
The bus you took probably said 15E - which is basically a substitute for the tram when there are not enough trams to go around. 15E is a modern tram that uses old vehicles at night (between Praça de Figueira and Belém and sometimes they add buses to deal with the crowds.
