Buses run regularly and are modern with air conditioning. Buses are very easy to identify and you can either purchase tickets at the bus terminal or entering the bus. If you are travelling with infants or babies people tend to be very accommodating and will give up their seat for you.
Car hire outside of peak season can be very cheap indeed however this can be expensive between July and September. Renting a car from Lisbon airport is better value than picking up/dropping off in Cascais (the price is higher and they include a pickup/drop off fee). If you need to get to the airport we can help with out local taxi service.
When you venture into Lisbon you cannot travel without experiencing the local trams. N28 (Graça) should be your tram of choice as this is the older tram version and takes you to the heart of Lisbon and its cobbled streets.
