SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, Oct 7 (EUROPA PRESS) –
Transportes Interurbanos de Tenerife (Titsa) will reestablish lines 342 and 348 starting tomorrow Friday, which connect the Teide National Park with Costa Adeje and Puerto de la Cruz, respectively. Both lines, which had been temporarily suspended due to the low demand due to COVID-19, will begin to operate on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and holidays with a daily route.
At the same time, the company has inaugurated a new route through the interior of the Park, which will visit the most emblematic sites of this space to respond to the demand of both residents and tourists. Stops will be made at Portillo Bajo, visitor center, Portillo Alto, Minas de San José, Montaña Blanca, cable car and parador (Roques de García).
The Minister of Mobility and President of Titsa, Enrique Arriaga, explained that this route seeks to “reconcile the management and preservation of a protected area with the interest it arouses among tourists and visitors. Thus, a more sustainable alternative is offered both to go to the Park as to know its main attractions “.
For her part, the Minister of Management of the Natural Environment and Security, Isabel García, has indicated that this new line that crosses the National Park “is an old demand in the protected space management policy, which is in line with the work on the one that we intend to stimulate the use of public transport, and the prelude to a new model of mobility management, which leads to a more sustainable use and respectful of the environment “.
The new line with which Titsa will cross the interior of the Park in both directions will maintain the number 342, corresponding to the one that connects with the South, and will cost 2.10 euros each way. It will cover the area between the Portillo Bajo and the parador (Roques de García), with departures at 11.00, 12.30, 13.10 and 14.40 in the direction of the parador and with routes at 11.20, 12.30, 13.10 and 14.00 in the direction of the visitors Center.
For its part, line 342, which will cost from 6.05 euros, will leave Costa Adeje at 9:15 am and the return will be at 3:15 pm (from El Portillo). The 348, whose price will be from 4.10 euros, will depart from Puerto de la Cruz at 09:30 and will return at 15:55 (from the parador).
The company points out that tickets for these lines can be paid in cash, with the Tenmás card, with a credit card or with tourist cards for one or seven days, which include this journey to Mount Teide.
