What is the bus schedule like on a Sunday for travel between Lisbon and Nazare?

I am traveling from Lisbon to Nazare on a Sunday in early June. Rick's book describes the bus schedule on a Sunday as "dismal." I checked the RED-EX website (which has a link for English) and checked the February 2017 SUnday schedule and there appears to be at least 4-5 buses on Sunday between the two cities.
Does anyone have any firsthand experience as to the frequency (or lack thereof) on a Sunday.

I don't see the word "dismal" applied exactly to this city pair in Rick's book. Sunday schedules should continue to follow the pattern that we find in February.

I would go off the operator's current website, which is going to always be more up to date than any guide book.

I always drive in Portugal, rather than rely on public transport, as car hire is cheap.

Personally, I also think that Rick's comments on Nazare being a quaint fishing village worth visiting are also out of date! It's overly commercialised and not as nice as some of the other resorts in the area.
