BUS: It’s probably best for most visitors to take one or more of the public bus routes. The routes are circular, with a stop in front of each of the major tourist sights. One ticket is good for all day on that particular bus route. Think a very cheap hop-on/hop-off bus route, and you have the idea. All the buses stop directly at the train station as well (just to the right upon exiting), so they can be caught immediately upon arrival via train.
Rede Expressos is one of the largest inter-city bus companies. + Rodo-Norte (northern regions) and Eva Transportes.
TRAIN: Sintra can be reached by frequent CP commuter train service from several Lisbon stations, including Santa Apolónia (map), Oriente (map), Campolide (map) and Rossio (map).
