La Palma increases bus route frequency to airport
The bus line that connects the capital of La Palma with the airport has expanded its frequencies.
The service between between Santa Cruz de La Palma and the airport will now be every half hour , Monday through Friday and Saturdays until noon.
Minister of Transportation of the Cabildo, Laura Paz said: “The 500 line that covers the service from the capital to the airport through Los Cancajos is one of those that supports the greatest demand.”
She said both this measure and the rest of those that will be applied in frequencies and routes of the lines will be evaluated by the Transportation Area of the Cabildo to determine its effectiveness and degree of user satisfaction.
“Everything is susceptible to change in favour of a better service,” she says.
The Cabildo is also reminding people that from January 1st, the island’s new Resident Canary Bonus is in force, with a single payment of 25 euros, allowing the user to make an unlimited number of trips in a bus for a month.
Likewise, and also from January 1st, the Canario Joven Resident Bonus allows this same unlimited monthly use of the public transportation service in a bus to people under 30 years old at a price of 15 euros.
Finally, the Unemployed Canary Resident Bonus can be requested by appointment prior to February 1st. Its cost will be 2 euros and, like the rest of the bonds, it will allow an unlimited use of the public transport service in a bus for a month.
