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.
For a diagram of these bus routes click or tap here
A LIST OF THE OTHER BUSES BETWEEN VARIOUS PLACES IS AT THE END OF THIS TIMETABLE

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. Arrival in Albufeira will be approx. 5 minutes earlier then the departure time shown in the timetable.
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.
