TIMETABLE NOTES

XXX for what good it may be, this bus also runs on Mondays and Thursdays during school holidays.
ON SCHOOLDAYS THE 0712 BUS FROM AMOROSA RUNS 10 MINUTES LATER AND STARTS FROM CUMEADA AT 0710
** buses start from and end at the Avenida Guanaré near the Repsol garage and the Largo do Dique. This is by the river and about 5 minutes walk from the actual city centre.

Arrival in Portimão will be about 5 minutes later than the time shown on the timetable.
On the way into the centre of Portimão, the buses take a rather long route owing to the one-way system.
They stop at several places before getting to the terminus. No allowance is made for this.
If you don't want a trip around town, get off at the first stop after the bridge, cross the road for the five minute walk into the actual centre. Map here.
On the way back to Lagoa etc they go directly out over the bridge, not stopping anywhere until on the other side at Parchal.

There is a very limited service between Silves and Messines via Fonte Louzeiro - click here for times

** 1700 (MFO) and the 1515 (Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays) RUN NON-STOP Portimão - Lagoa

Lagoa - Portimão COMPLETE SERVICE SUMMARY ALL ROUTES

All buses leave from the Lagoa Bus terminal, but from any one of five different stops, depending on where they have come from! Fortunately they are close together, so just look for buses with either Portimão or Lagos on the front.
Journey 10 – 15 minutes by non-stop buses; 25 - 30 minutes by others.

Buses in ORANGE type are non-stop between Lagoa and Portimão Avenida Guarané.

Local buses in black type stop in Estombar (6 minutes after Lagoa), almost outside Slide n' Splash (8 minutes), Mexilhoeira de Carregeção (10 mins) and Parchal (15 mins) and on the way into Portimão
the buses have to take a rather long route once over the bridge. This is because of the one-way traffic system. Buses do stop at other places including the market and stadium before reaching the terminus.
