Note 1 - not required at the moment!
Note 2 - The 1912 train to Lagos runs  SSH - Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays only. The 1931 train to Lisbon runs on SUNDAYS ONLY from 27th July to 31st August
Note 3 - I would not take a chance on the next bus. It arrives at just about the same time the train to Lagos is due to leave. You would not have time to buy a train ticket.
Note 4 - the bus may not wait if the train is late. Next bus is 30 minutes later.
Note 5 - there is a bus into Albufeira at 2130 from 1st June to 30th October; otherwise the last bus is at 2100.

THE CONNECTIONS BELOW ARE NOT VERY USEFUL. HEADING TOWARDS ALBUFEIRA, YOU HAVE TO CROSS THE ROAD AT CAMPING ALBUFEIRA TO THE BUS STOP IN FRONT OF THE MAIN ENTRANCE. THE GIRO 1 BUS TOWARDS TOWN DOES NOT WAIT FOR THE LINHA LARANJA BUS AND YOU MAY HAVE TO WAIT 25 MINUTES. COMING FROM TOWN, IF THE GIRO 2 IS USED THERE IS A WAIT AT THE CENTRO SAUDE OF ABOUT 15 MINUTES FOR THE LINHA LARANJA. IF IT'S A NICE DAY USE THE FOOTPATH AS SHOWN.
