Fertagus is owned by the Portuguese transportation company, Grupo Barraqueiro. The company's name derives from caminhos-de-ferro, meaning railway, and the Latin form of the river Tagus (which coincides with the English name).

Fertagus is the first private rail operator in Portugal. The company pays REFER a fee for use of its infrastructure.

Fertagus transports 70,000 passengers daily.[2]
