Improved Public Transport Access - Faro Airport

Thanks to Sergio Bastos of for the heads-up on this.

An article in the Algarve newspaper Região-Sul today reports that there will be a meeting today between Turismo do Algarve, Faro Airport and Eva Transportes, (the main bus operator in the Algarve), about improving public transport access to Faro Airport.

Article in portuguese here:

It has obviously finally come to the attention of the regional tourism authorities that the impending implementation of tolls on the A22 motorway etc is pushing visitors to the Algarve to seek cheaper public transport options to get to their local destinations.

Lets hope EVA also agree to route, at least, its Transrapido service via Faro Airport thus offering travellers some direct bus access to destinations such as Albufeira, Portimão and Lagos
