IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ - THIS TIMETABLE SHOWS ALL BUSES BETWEEN LAGOS, PORTIMÃO, ALBUFEIRA AND FARO ON SEVERAL DIFFERENT ROUTES.
FOR A QUICK SUMMARY OF THE BUSES BETWEEN MAIN TOWNS ONLY, PLEASE CLICK HERE.
There is an irregular local bus service daily from Lagos to Portimão, via a different route.
A LIST OF THE OTHER BUSES IS AT THE END OF THIS TIMETABLE

MOST OF THE BUSES ON THESE ROUTES DO NOT RUN AT WEEKENDS OR ON HOLIDAYS
CHECK CAREFULLY FOR THE DAYS ON WHICH BUSES RUN.

57 - Lagos - Faro 'TRANSRÁPIDO' bus. Stops only at the places shown in the timetable plus some other locations in the city of Faro and
Portimâo Hospital about 5 minutes before Portimão itself.
51 - 'Linha Litoral' Lagos - Albufeira fast bus. Stops only at the places shown in the timetable plus Portimão Hospital
56 - 'Aerobus' Lagos - Faro via the airport.  Stops only at the places shown in the timetable. HIGHER FARES ARE CHARGED.

9(D) and 66(D) - DIRECTA bus between Albufeira and Faro. Misses out some stops in Albufeira and Vilamoura. Details here.

TICKETS - IF BOARDING AT A BUS TERMINAL YOU MUST BUY YOUR TICKET AT THE TICKET WINDOW BEFORE GETTING ON THE BUS.
ALLOW A FEW MINUTES FOR THIS ESPECIALLY AT FARO. OTHERWISE BUY YOUR TICKET FROM THE DRIVER AS USUAL

CONNECTIONS - In my experience, I would not trust any connection of less than 15 minutes. Buses usually DO NOT WAIT for another late running service.
