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 11th July 2018. Transrápido buses are fitted with wifi but do not have toilets. Must have the priorities correct!!
The stop in Portimão has reverted to the Avenida Guanaré by the river.
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, partly because of traffic
congestion and partly because the timetables are unrealistic-
. 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.
Tickets cannot be purchased on line. If boarding at a
bus station, you buy your ticket at the bus station ticket office if
Otherwise pay the driver, cash only, when boarding.
Other buses run between
Faro and Albufeira (via Vilamoura); also between Albufeira, Guia,
Armação De Pera, Lagos and Portimão.
