To view and print this timetable as a PDF file please click here but be aware not all the notes and words of wisdom are included
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 16th August 2014

Operated by EVA

IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ - THIS TIMETABLE SHOWS ALL BUSES BETWEEN LAGOA AND FARO ON SEVERAL DIFFERENT ROUTES.
FOR A QUICK SUMMARY OF THE BUSES BETWEEN MAIN TOWNS ONLY, PLEASE CLICK HERE.
This timetable also shows the buses that run from Lagos and Portimão to Albufeira and Faro
There is a frequent local service daily between  Lagos and Portimão, also from Portimão to Lagoa.
A LIST OF THE OTHER BUSES IS AT THE END OF THIS TIMETABLE

PLEASE NOTE THAT MOST OF THE BUSES SHOWN BELOW DO NOT RUN AT WEEKENDS OR ON HOLIDAYS;
CHECK CAREFULLY FOR THE DAYS ON WHICH BUSES RUN.

THIS TIMETABLE APPLIES ALL YEAR ROUND; THERE ARE NO EXTRA BUSES IN SUMMER.

"Interurban" Buses in the Algarve do NOT have route/line numbers as they do in most of Europe..
Check bus type at the head of the column - shown here for your guidance
TR - Faro - Lagos TRANSRÁPIDO bus. Stops only at the places shown in the timetable plus some other locations in the city of Faro
AL - Lagos - Albufeira fast bus.Stops only at the places shown in the timetable plus Portimâo Rotunda da Hospital about 7 minutes after leaving Portimão itself.
DIR - DIRECTA interurban semi-fast bus Albufeira to Faro via Quarteira; misses some stops; details here
NOR - NORMAL interurban (slow) bus Albufeira to Faro via Quarteira; INT - "Ordinary" bus on other interurban routes.

TICKETS - IF BOARDING AT A BUS TERMINAL YOU MUST BUY YOUR TICKET AT THE TICKET WINDOW BEFORE GETTING ON THE BUS.
ALLOW A FEW MINUTES FOR THIS ESPECIALLY AT FARO. OTHERWISE BUY YOUR TICKET FROM THE DRIVER AS USUAL

CONNECTIONS - the timetables for the TR and AL buses in particular are somewhat optimistic! Expect delays of 10 - 15 minutes at ANY time towards the middle/end
of the journey. In my experience, I would not trust any connection of less than 15 minutes. Buses usually DO NOT WAIT for another late running service.
