The Cabildo have announced new measures regarding the buses on Lanzarote that come into force today.
The new measures have changed the conditions of the Bono Residente Canario bus card, and several bus lines will also improve their services and timetables to support the demand of residents. Additionally, the Cabildo announced that the new information office at the bus station in Playa Blanca will be in operation from today.
“It is important that every decision taken and every step taken in this matter, results in the quality of the service improving for the residents across the island, always encouraging the use of public transport to help reduce CO2 emissions”, stated Cabildo president, Oswaldo Betancort.
As explained in the announcement yesterday, residents’ travel cards will also be subject to a new minimum condition for free travel this month. Only 15 journeys need to be made within three months to qualify for free journeys.
From today, Line 22 which connects Arrecife with the César Manrique Airport, will operate every 40 minutes from 5.30 am to 11.30 pm, and will serve a route covering Arrecife’s seafront and the bus station in addition to the interchange.
PLAYA BLANCA’S NEW OFFICE OPENS
The new information office at the Playa Blanca bus station will be open from 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday and will now allow users to acquire and charge bus cards at the southern station instead of having to travel to the Arrecife station to recharge certain cards.
Additionally, the 30 line in Playa Blanca is trialling a contactless payment system allowing bus users to pay by card.
