Travel direct from Porto airport to Braga?

Looking to find the quickest way to get from Porto airport to the centre of Braga.

Can see there's a metro from the airport to the centre of Porto and then a train line out to Braga......but is there a simpler/ more direct option at all?

Thanks

In short, NO, not by public transport.

That's the only way I know of. It will only cost about 4,30 Euros. for the whole journey, which will take maybe 1hr 45 minutes depending on how long you have to wait for the metro (they run every 20 minutes) and the train to Braga which runs every hour with extra trains at peak hour times.

Take the metro to Porto Campanha station then the train to Braga.

Great info Rui D. Thank you so much!

I'd been looking into this last month and found a Transdev bus going from Povoa de Varzim, which you can reach by metro. Not sure however how far metro and bus station are from each other.

Not bad from getbus if the times are suitable.

I recall from one rather rainy visit to Povoa de Varzim that it doesn't have a bus station as such, but that most of the buses stop just a couple of minutes walk from the metro station.

I would still go by metro to Campanhã then by train to Braga as that offers the most frequent service with minimum of hassle changing lines/trains. It's also the cheapest!

It may have gotten the new bus station after your visit.

Now it also becoms clear that the distance to metro is more than 15 min. walking.
