The bus stops are on the main road to the right of the level (grade) crossing as you leave the train.
You will clearly see the bus stops. Cross the road to the stop outside 'O Forinho da Estação' for buses into Silves.
From the station into town it is about 20 minutes walk, downhill but mostly along a busy road with no footpath.
The reward is nice views of the town across the river. It's steeply uphill almost all the way back! A taxi would cost €4 or €5
