Lagos to Lisbon (Overnight) by train or bus

The fastest route by public transport from Lagos to Lisbon is by bus operated by Eva Transportes taking 3hrs. 45min. Return Fare is € 34.20.

If you go to my blog at:

Scroll down on the right hand panel until you come to the section entitled:

»» Algarve & Portugal - Travel Transport Links

You will find two entries -

>> Eva Bus Service - Lagos to Lisbon Sete Rios

>> Eva Bus Service - Lisbon Sete Rios to Lagos

These will give you direct access to the relevant timetables.

Renex also operate a service on this route - there is also a link in the panel to their timetables. However, this service takes longer - up to 5 hours if traffic in Lisbon is bad.

The train is pleasant but takes longer. Unless you get up very early and get the 6:11, you miss the best part of the day. However, the train trip is a great way to see Portugal and crossing the 25 de Abril bridge as you enter Lisbon on a sunny day is worth the extra effort.

The following is an extract from the current timetable.

Prices are currently up to € 21.00 per person each way.
