Lagos > Portimão > Lagoa > Armação De Pêra > Albufeira > Vilamoura > Quarteira > Faro

The information has been obtained from printed timetables and other local sources (like taking the bus) and is given in good faith.
With so few buses running and frequent changes, I am not updating the printable timetable for this page.

checked and
          updated

Bus service below applies as from Monday 19th April
Most weekend bus service remains suspended

Operated by EVA

IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ - THIS TIMETABLE SHOWS ALL BUSES BETWEEN LAGOA AND FARO ON SEVERAL DIFFERENT ROUTES.
FOR A QUICK SUMMARY OF THE BUSES BETWEEN MAIN TOWNS ONLY, PLEASE CLICK HERE.
This timetable also shows the buses that run from Lagos and Portimão to Albufeira and Faro. 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.

"Interurban" Buses in the Algarve do NOT have route/line numbers as they do in most of Europe.
Check bus type at the head of the column - shown here for your guidance
TR - Faro - Lagos TRANSRÁPIDO bus. Stops only at the places shown in the timetable plus some other locations in the city of Faro
LL - 'Linha Litoral' Lagos - Albufeira fast bus.Stops only at the places shown in the timetable plus Portimâo Rotunda da Hospital about 7 minutes after leaving Portimão itself.
NOR - NORMAL interurban (slow) bus Albufeira to Faro via Vilamoura and Quarteira; INT - "Ordinary" bus on other interurban routes.

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 - the timetables for the TR and LL buses in particular are somewhat optimistic! Expect delays of 10 - 15 minutes at ANY time towards the middle/end
of the journey. In my experience, I would not trust any connection of less than 15 minutes. Buses usually DO NOT WAIT for another late running service.
