TORREVIEJA TO AIRPORT BUS PUT TO TENDER
12 March 2012 @ 13:22

The transport department of the Valencia government has announced that it will put the Torrevieja to Alicante airport bus service out to tender, looking at a company to provide the service at a maximum of 285,000 euro per year.

The service had been operating on a trial basis since May of last year, gaining an extension in September. Not without problems, the service was expected to carry 100,000 passengers a year on the express service between the two points, although figures have been much lower than this.

The permanent move is hoped to form part of an action plan to crack down on illegal taxis operating in the area, which the absence of a bus service only exaggerated.

Hopefully this process will flush out a few improvements - personally I'd like to see the service extended to take in Orihuela Costa as currently it means have to get taxi from Torrevieja and it doesn't really work out much cheaper than getting an illegal taxi but you have the hassle of waiting around, etc.
