Urban bus line 103 – free for registered residents – extends its frequency on weekends. This has been announced by the mayor, Víctor Navas, who intends with this initiative to promote the use of public transport.
“Now it is about increasing the frequency of the line, offering citizens a new incentive to leave their private vehicle at home, thus facilitating more sustainable mobility through the promotion of the use of public transport with a free line that allows users to travel to any corner of the municipality in the shortest possible time”, explained Navas.
This increase in the frequency of passage of line 103, which has its last stop at the Buddhist stupa, will mean, in the opinion of the mayor, “the perfect claim so that the residents of Benalmádena can go free to the next representation of El Paso, on Good Thursday and Good Friday.
The timetable extension of line 103 will become effective this weekend. The councilor for transport, Javier Marín, explained that “until now, the weekend service was carried out by a single bus, and As of this Saturday, April 9, it will be expanded to two buses, with which we will be able to reduce the frequency of passage by half.”
This expansion of the service implies an annual disbursement by Innoben of approximately 64,000 euros, money that is obtained through the company’s own activity managing publicly owned advertising media, in addition to the contributions made by the City Council and the Government to support public transport, specifies the mayor.
“From Innoben we collaborate in this way in promoting more sustainable mobility, with a more moderate use of the private vehicle, and reducing the emission of polluting gases”, the councilor celebrated.
For his part, Rafael Durbán has assessed this improvement “as one more firm step in the City Council’s commitment to improving the public transport offer in Benalmádena”.
The director has commented that for several months the potential offered by this increase in the frequency of passage during the weekends was being studied, “because it meant an increase in the number of travellers”.
“At Avanza we are delighted to collaborate with the City Council when it comes to putting these new resources on the streets to meet the mobility needs of citizens”, concluded Rafael Durban.
