Tías Ayuntamiento is now addressing its Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan, a project that will run from 2023 to 2030, and aims to transform the resort of Puerto del Carmen into a more pedestrian-friendly area.

The Plan was approved in May, and sets down various requirements for Puerto del Carmen, including Blue Zones for paid/metered parking. Green spaces for residents will also be included in this phase, although the details will have to be agreed with residents and businesses.

A study will be carried out on roads between the seafront and the ring road, on the basis that many areas are over-saturated with vehicles. The aim will be to improve conditions for pedestrians and create spaces for cyclists.

Public transport will also be improved, with the establishment of new lines and the extension of existing ones. 

The overall aim of the plan is to reduce reliance on private vehicles in Puerto del Carmen.
