Dear colleagues,
I am travelling from Lisbon to Potimao on Dec., 2. I need to get a bus to Portimao. I found a homepage of Algarvebus, but it is not possible to understand anything on it. Maybe someone from Portugal knows how I can get from Lisbon airport to Portimao. I arrive at 3.30 p.m. Is there any possibility to go directly from the airport or to which station I have to go to take a bus, and when the bus goes.

Portimão Nov 19, 2016

Hello, Erika,

I'm currently in Aveiro, 2 h northwest of Lisbon, but I've been to Lisbon. The place you're looking to go is Portimão. If you go to maps.google.com, you can set the Lisbon Airport (Lisbon Portela) as a starting point and Portimão as the destination point. From what I see, the red line metro (linha vermelha) will take you there.

Lisbon to Portimão Linha Vermelha

I hope the above helps. If not, send me an email and I'll try to get more info for you.

Cheers.

Mario

bus to Portimao Nov 19, 2016

Hi Erika,

you need to take the red line (metro) and change to blue line on Sao Sebastiao, then get off at Jardim Zoologico. The buses to Portimao leave from a station called Sete Rios (just above the metro exit). You can check the timetables at http://www.rede-expressos.pt/

Cheers,
Zuzana

I second Zuzana, the best thing is to get a bus at the bus station in Sete Rios, just as Zuzana described. Besdies of Rede Expressos company, there is Eva, shorter travelling time as they drive more direct and stop less.
No need to worry bout getting tickets in advance, busses leave in intervals of one hour in the morning and later afternoon. Where the number of passengers exceeds the seating (on holiday seasons), they arrange a second bus for the same timing.
All you need to be clear about is where you want to step out: in Portimao itself or Praia da Rocha.

Both companies are good, Rede Expressos just stops in more locations.

What is there in Portimão?

I'll be in Lisbon for three months next year and I want to spend some time traveling around Portugal, Spain and Europe.

Obrigado!

Mario
