Metrotenerife, a company attached to the Cabildo de Tenerife, has planned that the regular tram service will begin to resume the winter schedule from this Thursday due to the socio-economic reactivation of the metropolitan area.
Thus, in the central hours from Monday to Friday Line 1 will increase its circulation to 6 minutes and Line 2 to 12 minutes and it will be from the 12th when the tram network adopts its usual winter frequencies, of 5 and 10 minutes, mainly.
The island councilor for Mobility and president of Metrotenerife, Enrique Arriaga, comments in a note that “the reestablishment of the frequencies for the winter timetable will coincide with the entry into force of the 50% discount on collective public transport and that finances the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda”.
In this way, he continues, “we are in a better position to respond to the increase in demand, between 10% and 15%, which we hope to achieve with this measure”.
Starting this Thursday, Line 1 will operate every 6 minutes, from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., and Line 2 will do the same with a frequency of 12 minutes and in the evening-night hours, the provision of the service will be from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. 15 minutes.
As of Monday the 12th, the tram network will adopt the definitive frequencies of the winter timetable, that is, 5 minutes on Line 1 and 10 minutes on Line 2 during central hours from Monday to Friday. Next, the step intervals will be 6, 12 and 15 minutes, depending on the time slot.
Weekend hours will not be modified and will be the same as those used throughout the year.
