This page is unofficial. The information has been
obtained from printed timetables and other local sources (like
taking the bus) and is given in good faith.
Everything is correct to the best of my knowledge as of 1st April 2017. Transrápido buses are now fitted with wifi
Note there are only two
journeys each way on Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays
Reservations are not possible. These buses do not serve the airport - for the airport/city connections click here
Also, although the timetable does not say so, these buses also stop at the 'Algarve Shopping' Mall near Guia
Time at Algarve Shopping 1 minute after Guia going towards Faro, I minute before Guia towards Portimão.
Timekeeping is very poor on this route. Expect delays of 10 - 15 minutes towards the end of the journey on any day of the week.
The vehicles used are what would be called coaches in the UK.. They are NOT wheelchair accessible.
They have luggage compartments for big bags. They do NOT have on board toilets, so go before you get on.
There is no time at any intermediate stop.
Other buses run between
Faro and Albufeira (via Vilamoura); also between Albufeira, Guia,
Armação De Pera, Lagos and Portimão.
