IN DETAIL - official timetable until further notice
Connections possible at Aljezur for Lagos and northwards.
Thanks to Michiel van Dam for updating the advice on the connections at Monte do Rei :
At Monte do Rei, near Apartementos Rosa. Here you can change to the bus from Aljezur via Monte Ruivo to Lagos. The buses wait for each other at that point.
So no reason to panic when the bus from Carrapateira and Bordeira arrives about 5 minutes late :) This connection is however only available on SCHOOLDAYS.
For the return to Bordeira and Carrapateira, at Monte Ruivo / Monte do Rei turn left and walk 150 meters on the N268 to the nearest bus stop for Bordeira and Carrapateira.
WARNING - THE REDUCED TIMETABLE ON THE LAGOS TO ALJEZUR ROUTE MEANS THAT
THERE IS NO LONGER A CONNECTION COMING FROM LAGOS TO BORDEIRA AND CARRAPATEIRA
Some of the drivers will issue tickets to/from Monte da Vinha, which is one stop further direction Alfambras/Aljezur.
Buses to and from Lagos are shown here.
