Catch bus no 8 from outside the central railway station. Stay on for about 1/2 an hour, into the small town of Ovyra on the outskirts of Patras. The bus takes a sharp right in the down and goes down a hill. At the bottom of the hill it turns left. Get off at the next stop (you should see signs for the junction) and you can follow signs to easily walk to the slip road for the E55 going south.
