Can anyone tell me if there is a bus that goes from Porto Airport to Castanheira de Pera, or to somewhere close by - Coimbra even?

I may have friends flying in and would be easier if I could collect them from somewhere closer than Porto! :)

I don't have the details but am fairly sure there's a bus service from Porto airport that stops in both CdP & FdV.
Wow, that sounds spot on! I'll see if I dig up any info. Thanks! :)

As far as I can tell the bus to those two towns is from Lisbon airport. Best option seems to be train to Coimbra.

No no - you were right!

Rede Expressos Go from Porto to FdV, but you have to get a taxi from the airport to the bus terminal.

It would be far cheaper for them to take the metro from the airport to Campanha and a taxi from outside the station.

Matt. There is a new shuttle service operating between the airport and the coach station in Porto where your friends can catch a Rede Expressos to Coimbra. Twice a day there is a connection to FdV.

The shuttle costs €2.50 each way and you will find the timetable here:

Transdev - Aeroporto Porto
