TIMETABLE NOTES

It is fairly common for non-accessible buses (ie not suitable for wheelchairs) to be used on this route.
There is no way of knowing which type of bus will show up.
NOTE
- the buses call at the railway station only on the WAY BACK from Vale Serves.
If you don't want to go all the way along the road and back, it is only 3 minutes walk to the station from the stop at the bottom of the road.
++ nearest stop to old town centre, about 10 minutes walk along the flat footpath. Map.

Connection for Albufeira old town - no official timed connections are provided.
Linha Vermelha 1 buses usually leave Camping Albufeira a minute or two before the Laranja bus arrives.
They do NOT STOP until they get to the old town (Centro Antigo) despite what the route map says.
(It is this kind of nonsense that makes parts the system of poor value.
It would cost nothing to get the other bus to wait at Camping Albufeira for an extra two minutes to save people a 28 minute wait or a few minutes walk.)
