Lisbon to Evora - train or bus?

I will be in Lisbon for a few days this coming April, and I'd like to make a day trip to Evora. From what I can tell, I can get there pretty easily in about 1.5 hours on either the train or the bus.....the bus is a little cheaper, but just about 3 Euros or so. Can anyone tell me if there are any differences that might make me choose one over the other (comfort, other travelers, location of the train/bus station)? (I posted this in travel, but I thought later this forum might have more traffic.)

From memory only. About 20 services by bus per day, 4 by train (direct). The bus station is more central than the train station by 5 to 10 minutes walk.
No idea of your experience so - the bus will be a coach, the train you can move around in.

If you like the painted tiles of the area, there's some huge ones on the platform of the train station.

We travelled from Lisbon to Evora for an overnight stay about seven or eight years go. Our Lisbon-based aunt recommended taking the bus, and it was just fine extremely clean, great views of the countryside and Evora was beautiful well worth it. Enjoy your trip!
