Hop on - Hop off bus

Post by Farol » Fri Nov 04, 2016 1:32 pm

During the last week I've seen a sign written mini bus several times either in Ferragudo or going between there and CVO. I've not seen any publicity for it nor heard about it. Anybody know of it?

If it's a new /recent service then it could do quite well depending on where it goes, price and frequency.

There is a bus-stop just inside the main entrance to Rocha Brava, opposite the coffee shop.

The bus stop in the resort Rocha Brava is probably for their own service to the square. The bus stop Farol de Alfanzina on the timetable is at the T junction just past Jardim do Farol.

Rocha Brava's own minibus runs from reception. The bus stop opposite the coffee shop is new, and I've seen the Rota das Falesias bus using it.

Useful, is this in addition to the Farol de Alfanzina bus stop on the main road or as an alternate?
