Rede Expressos tickets are currently on sale 1 month in advance.

THESE JOURNEYS OPERATED BY REDE EXPRESSOS AND ITS PARTNERS RUN FROM AND TO THE MAIN BUS STATION AT ALBUFEIRA CALIÇOS
otherwise known as

Rede-Expressos passengers can, they say, use local VAMUS buses free of charge (provided you have a Rede Expressos ticket of course!) to travel to or from the Albufeira bus station stop. I have never met anyone who has actually done this.
