bus tickets in portugal

We are hoping to travel by bus to two destinations in Portugal. First to Fatima from Lisbon. Then to Barcelos from Fatima. Is it possible to buy both tickets ahead of time in Lisbon? If so, where may I buy them ? thank you., Hank, Novato

This is the bus company for the journey Lisboa to Fatima and at least the same company on to Barcelos -

As you can see with the volume of bus journeys per day advance purchase is probably unnecessary for the first leg, but if you want peace of mind see what you can do with an on-line purchase or look up on 'Points of Sale'.

In the past, I purchased my bus tickets on the day of travel, and would likely follow that same procedure again.

Thank you both for your prompt responses. The trip to Fatima is on May 12 when thousands of people are going there for special worship so for peace of mind we most likely will buy ahead of time. Thank you again, for your advice. Hank, Novato, CA
