Several have gone, uprooted. Including the ones at Albufeira Camping, on Rua Coronel Aguas and Avenida do Ténis by the roundabout.

If you didn't know, you would think the buses don't stop there any more. But they do, trust me.

Reason unknown, they weren't vandalised any more than some of those still standing.

Oh lord!  Where am I going to sleep it off when I'm over relaxed?

The benches are still there. No worries.

Nearly a month has passed and although the footings for new shelters have appeared in one or two places, nothing new.

Spotted a truck loaded with the new 'Albufeira standard' bus shelters and indeed a new one has now appeared here in Páteo. There's still nothing at a lot of places, for example  at Albufeira Camping and by the old cemetery, to even show buses still stop there.

I would imagine it's too much to hope that the town council will spend a few extra cents to put up timetables. Rather more useful to visitors especially than telling them the bus comes 'every 30 or 60 minutes'.

New bus shelter being installed this morning by new council depot/ secondary school in Brejos. Not a subject I know anything about but doesn't look very different from the old one. 
I would rather they replace the non working lights in Parque Alfarobeiro near the bus station.

Bus shelters now all seem to have been replaced, but still no information to be seen about when and where the buses go. Priorities?

And yes streetlights in several areas could do with fixing as well, unless it is  deliberate policy to reduce the number to save on electricity
