Timekeeping is affected by traffic congestion in Faro especially at rush hours. The buses make a circuit of Faro and they are not allowed sufficient time.
The 1600 and 1715 buses from Faro to Albufeira are notorious in this respect (from personal experience) and are usually 15 - 20 minutes late by the time they get to Loulé. 
They are also VERY overcrowded on schooldays - you will literally have to fight your way on board at Loulé. You have been warned!

BUS STOPS IN LOULÉ

Loulé has a fun one-way traffic system and the buses stop at different places inbound and outbound.

Click here for a map of Loulé centre showing the bus stops and the two market locations. Will open in a new window.
