Buses to Faro Airport
Faro Airport offers two bus options; the public transport network that takes you to and from Faro city, and the airport’s private shuttle service.
Bear in mind that Faro buses don’t stick rigidly to the timetable. Apart from that, the public transport network only runs to and from Faro, so if you’re off to an Algarve resort you’ll be better off pre-booking a shared shuttle bus via Shuttle Direct (www.shuttledirect.com).
There’s a handy bus stop outside the main terminal to your right. From Faro’s main bus station you can catch all sorts of buses that’ll take you all over the Algarve and beyond.
If you’re feeling adventurous and you’ve got spare time, use the local bus service! The Algarve’s primary bus company is Eva Bus – get bus details on their website, eva-bus.net.
