First phase, when Evaristo Nunes Pinto and Camilo Mongeon, concessionaires of the American railroad, from the railway station of the North to Coimbra, require, in February of the year of 1873 that the cars pass through the streets of the city, presenting for the effect plant of the project, start the development of the history of urban transport in Coimbra.

The council's decision was swift and came on Feb. 20. Nevertheless the subsequent development of the process dragged and only to 17 of September of 1874 the company in the meantime created, Rail Road Conimbricense, communicates to the municipality the opening to the exploration of the line, whose route went from Calçada to the station of the railway From north.

However, the Rail Road Conimbricense did not find an easy path and the request of authorization presented in 1885, to extend its line of the Toll to the Cais das Ameias, the present New Station, as well as a request to reduce the prices of the tickets , ended in a failed attempt to counter the stronger competition from the start of the railway branch to the City Center.
