City Bus Schedules
In general, you will not need transportation to see the main tourist sights in Arcos. The town is eminently walkable. However, if you want to discover more beyond the main historical center you will end up doing plenty of walking, and remember that you are walking up and down hills here. Though they are not terribly steep, you will notice after a while.
Here is the bus schedule:
buses seem to run every 30 minutes, there is a line for the center, the lower town, and a few other lines, some of which will take you out of town as well

Walking is the best way to get around Arcos. Parking is very limited especially in the old part on the hill. There is a car park in the square in front of St Marys. The roads are very narrow in the old part which can make driving difficult.
There is a huge car park at the bottom of the hill near to a school. When we entered Arcos instead of driving up the hill to the old town, we took the road to the right and there is a very big car park. There is a hut for the attendant however being November it was closed and the car park virtually empty. Cross over the road and there are steps to take you up the hill to the old town.
There is also an underground car park which you can enter from either Paseo de Andalucia or Avenida Duque de Arcos.
If you enlarge the photograph you can see a a very sandy coloured area that is the car park, photograph taken from the road at the top of the steps.
