The Estoril Coast is well served by a very efficient Public transport system.
Our first experience started at the airport. As instructed, Hans and I took the Aerobus which had a pick-up area right in front of the terminal. It had an area for your luggage and the cost was Euro 3,50 per person. The Aerobus didn't depart until it was jam-packed with people - kinda annoying considering how much it cost to use it. After going through the city of Lisbon, we got off at the last stop - Cais do Sodre' train station (near the River Tego). From there we took the train to Cascais which was Euro 1,70 per person and the trip took about 30 minutes. The train travelled all along the beautiful coastline. The Cascais train station was only a few minutes walk to our Hotel Albergaria Valbom - very convenient and easy.
During our stay, we also used the train for our Lisbon Tour and to get to Estoril for our Saturday night dinner - Euro 1,20

We did not use the local bus at all while in Cascais, but the bus station is conveniently located near Cascais Villa Mall.

Taxi
As Hans and I had to get to Lisbon Airport early Sunday morning ( our flight was at 8:30 a.m.) our hotel clerk pre-arranged a taxi for us. Bright and early - 5:00 a.m. our driver arrived. He was neatly dressed in a white shirt, he was very polite and he drove a beautiful Mercedes with leather interior - very luxurious - very professional. As it was early on a Sunday morning, there was absolutely no traffic all the way to the airport, which was about a 45 minute drive. The taxi fare was 50 Euros. The driver pointed out that he had to pay highway tolls and was almost apologetic about the price.
