Metrotenerife, the transport company of the Cabildo de Tenerife, will adapt its 2023 Service Plan in view of the foreseeable increase in user demand due to the application of free recurring passes in public transport.
In this sense, and following the instructions of the Island Corporation, the tram will reinforce the service from January 16, improving frequencies during the morning and midday peak hours of each working day.
The first vice president of the Cabildo and president of Metrotenerife, Enrique Arriaga, explains in a statement that “to achieve this increase in frequencies, 21 trams will be put into circulation that will serve the metropolitan area simultaneously.”
In addition, he adds that the objective of this change is to guarantee the quality of the service despite the increase in demand.
Pursuant to this measure, Line 1 will provide service with frequencies of less than five minutes to reinforce the peak hours of greatest demand, which tend to occur especially in the slots between 07:00 and 10:00 in the morning, and from 12:00 to 15.00 noon.
During those same periods Line 2 will have frequencies of nine minutes.
Metrotenerife recalls that the one hundred percent discount on public transport will only be applied to customers who frequently use public transport and who are holders of the Canarian Resident voucher or the Youth, Senior and People with Disabilities monthly passes.
In this sense, and in order to obtain the free purchase of a new ticket, users must have made at least 15 trips in the previous 30 days, a condition that qualifies them as frequent users of public transport.
