SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, Dec. 17 (EUROPA PRESS) –
The Tenerife tram, transport company of the Cabildo de Tenerife, continues to recover its passenger demand rates and in November it stood at 89% compared to the same period in 2019, the year before the start of the pandemic.
Likewise, and in relation to 2020, the tram network has experienced a growth in the number of passengers of 22%, between January and November of this year.
The vice president of the Cabildo de Tenerife and president of Metrotenerife, Enrique Arriaga, points out in a note that “the recovery of passengers on the tram is a reflection of trust in public transport, which is established as a safe means for the mobility of the population”.
In fact, adds Arriaga, “with these data we hope to close the financial year 2021 with 20% more passengers on the tram compared to last year, to reach 12.4 million passengers.”
Christmas is one of the busiest periods for the tram and that is why the special services plan has already been activated, as indicated by the insular director of Mobility, José Alberto León.
Likewise, it informs that “commercial forecasts point to 1,100,000 passengers will be transported during these days of the Christmas and Kings season, although everything will depend on the evolution of the pandemic and the sanitary measures that are applied on these dates” .
