The information has been obtained from printed timetables and other local sources (like taking the bus) and is given in good faith.

checked and updated

Bus service from 1st December until further notice. Much of the weekend bus service remains suspended
The route / line number may not always be shown on the front of the bus!
I am 99% sure that the information on this page is correct but if you are travelling within the next few days
I recommend that you double check at the new official bus website http://vamus.pt

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.

TR - Faro - Lagos TRANSRÁPIDO bus (Route 57). 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.
9DIR - 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 - 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.
