TIMETABLE NOTES

** 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.
On the way into the centre of Portimão, the buses take a rather long route owing to the one-way traffic system.
They stop at several places before getting to the terminus. No allowance is made for this. Arrival in Portimão may be about 5 minutes later than the time shown on the timetable.

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.
