    Hi!

    Yes there is public transport between Faro Airport to Lagos or Alvor.

    Getting to Lagos/Alvor from Faro Airport can be done by:

    Bus - Faro Airport - Faro Bus Station
    Bus - Faro Bus Station - Albufeira
    Bus - Albufeira - Alvor/Lagos

    Or

    Bus - Faro Airport - Faro Bus Station
    Train - Faro Train Station - Lagos

    There is no train to Alvor. Descend at Portimão and take a taxi.

    Again allow a transit time of up to 5 hours as these are local buses and train .
    Note these services do not run hourly and forget buses/trains if you are arriving any time after 16:00 as public transport shuts done circa 19:00.

    The cost will be in the order of Euros 15 per person I would think.

    For general algarve public transport travel info see the following sites:

    www.solpraiaferias.com/index.php?content=cheg_en
    www.algarvebus.info
    www.cp.pt

    Taxis exist but can be pricey.

    The 2007 Faro Airport Timetable gives a guide price of:

    Faro Airport - Lagos (4 seater taxi) of
    Euro 76.00 (Monday to Friday)
    Euro 91.00 (All other times including week-ends)

    There are several companies offering minibus shuttle services from faro Airport to Lagos and Alvor.

    Have a look at these websites for starters:

    www.low-cost-transfers.com
    www.solpraiaferias.com/index.php?content=transfers&lang_opt=en
    www.polotur.com

    Hope this helps
    Personal Regards
