The Lanzarote Cabildo President, María Dolores Corujo, stated that “From September 1st, the discounts for bus passes on the island will be increased, to promote the use of public transport, to help families, and the environment”.
“The increase in fuel and energy prices led us to look for a solution so that citizens suffer as little as possible and, thanks to these discounts, we are confident that our public transport will not be compromised”, she added.
