The Town Council begins recovery of the three bus lines managed by the Junta in order to improve public transport in the light of extensive complaints.

/ Monday, 15 September 2014 / Published in News

The Mayor, Ángeles Muñoz, announced that the Town Council has begun proceedings to rescue the three urban bus routes that the Junta de Andalucia manages “with the objective of improving, organizing and increasing the quality of public transport in the town” and emphasized that these routes “annually accumulate 70% of the user complaints”.

Specifically, the recovery process relates to bus route 25 (Nueva Andalucía-Puerto Banús-Bus Station), bus route 54 (San Pedro Marbella-Hospital) and the night route (San Pedro-Marbella) which, as the Mayor indicated, “run exclusively within the municipality”.

She explained that “delays and crowding on these routes are constant, which has led to numerous calls on the part of the Town Council to the Junta without ever having obtained a reply” and she highlighted the fact that “our intention to improve public transport is not possible if it doesn’t include the public transport system in its entirety, which necessarily means taking back these bus routes and correcting their failings”.

The Mayor specified that these three bus routes “represent one third of the town’s public transport users, with over 700.000 users, and are the routes that register the highest number of complaints and incidents”. Similarly, she maintained that “improving transport is a priority for this Governing Team” and she mentioned that, despite not being a municipal competence, the Town Council already manages school and university transport “with a high degree of user satisfaction”.
