There are two ways to get from Patra to the Greek mainland: a bridge and a ferry (both from Rio to Antirrio). The ferry is free for foot passengers and cheaper than the bridge for cars, and also easier to access than the bridge. It runs several times per hour.
From Rio Toll Station:
Take Bus No 6 from downtown Patra (EUR 1.30). Ask for Korinthou Street. There are stops there. Get off at the end of the line at the hospital. There's a road on your left leading to the toll station after 15 min walk.
South towards the Peloponese
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.
