SAM is a public transportation company that has been serving Madeira's inhabitants for years. We link the municipality of Machico to Funchal's city centre (Santo da Serra, Porto da Cruz, Machico, Caniço, Santa Cruz, Funchal), using the highway or the Regional Road.
We have a ticket office at the departure station, at Avenida Calouste Gulbenkian - Edifício 2000 (opposite from the Dolce Vita shopping centre), where, besides buying your tickets, you can purchase a monthly pass, request passes (subsidised pass, student's pass >12, student's pass <12, senior/disabled or pensioner pass) or get the latest timetable. In all our buses you can buy the ticket directly from the driver without any additional costs. Read more
