I have twice stayed in Vlia Teresinha on Rua das Cruzes,
it is quite a steep climb from Aveida do Mar. Just as
I was leeving Last year I was informed that there was
a Bus Service that ran along Rua das Cruzes I never saw
this bus. Can someone advise me of the service No, full
route, & stopping places please. this climb is nothing
for the young & fit, but I am now 72 yrs old and this bus
would be a God Send.
I have booked again arriving February
If you know of this bus please respond
For Funchal bus route map, click on mapa da rede on here horariosdofunchal.pt/index.p... (or ask the Villa Teresinha people where is the nearest bus stop and which buses serve it..). Otherwise, I can only suggest you click on "carreiras urbanas" (top right) and investigate each of the routes - there aren't that many - to see if you recognise any of the stops listed, many of which are named for specific hotels.
The only bus that might go trought Rua das Cruzes (according to the map of Horários do Funchal) is number 50. However it doesn't go to Av do Mar or any place downtown.
