The City Council has presented this morning the cards that will allow the free use of the public transport service on line 103 to residents registered as of January 14.
“With this card we want to offer residents all the facilities for the use of urban transport, adding to previous initiatives such as the launch of an app that informs about the closest stops and the exact frequency of buses”, has explained the mayor, Víctor Navas.
Regarding the other interurban bus lines, -dependent of the Transport Consortium-, Navas indicated that “we will make the appropriate requests to ensure that in the future these lines are also free to use for registered residents, but it is a measure that does not depend on this City Council, but on other administrations such as the Junta de Andalucía and the Provincial Council ”.
From Innoben they estimate that, once the card has been requested, the issuance and delivery period will be about two weeks.
The CEO of Innoben has explained that citizens can request the card in two ways: electronically, by clicking on a banner that will appear on the main page of the City Council website (benalmadena.es), or by requesting them at both Citizen Service Offices (OAC), in the City Hall in Benalmádena Pueblo and in the Social Services building in Arroyo de la Miel.
“To request the card, the interested person must present theirID, and issue an authorizationfor the local administration to access their registry data, the issuance cost being totally free, although in case of loss, two euros must be paid”, has detailed Marín.
This new card will replace those that previously provided free use of line 103 for retirees, students and people with disabilities. Although, in the case of students, their card will remain valid until the end of the course; and, in the case of the elderly, who will be able to keep the same card that they requested during its validity of four years.
