can anyone tell me if buses run from porches to Albufeira and roughly how much
As per my other post, if you staying in the tourist resort area of Porches you will probably be in Senhora da Rocha.
Porches village is around 3 miles from there, so the answer is very different.
There are very few buses to/from Albufeira. Check the timetables at
www.algarvebus.info/002e.htm for buses towards Albufeira
www.algarvebus.info/002w.htm for buses back.
Observe that there are no buses in the evenings and only one each way on Sundays at Senhora da Rocha. Porches itself is slightly better off, but most of the buses stop along the main road not in the village centre.
Fare to Albufeira is €3,85
Also, Albufeira bus station is a mile from the town. For most journeys you will either have to walk, take another bus at €1,10 or take a taxi at 4 Euros.
A very few of the buses do stop on the edge of the old town however. Read the details carefully!
Good luck. Come back if I can be of further help.
many thanks for your reply
