Bus & coach travel in Portugal

Portugual is well served by a number of competing bus operators which provide a dense network of bus and coach routes, particularly between major cities and along tourist regions such as the Algarve.

Some of the major Portuguese bus operators include:

Inter Centro, Inter Norte and Inter Sul – the Portuguese Eurolines franchise holder serves international routes from Porto and Lisbon to destinations in Spain, France and the UK.

EVA – serves the Algarve region with frequent services between Faro and Lagos and international routes into Spain.
