InfrastructureNews

City of Palma is making the bus line 2 free of charge for all the public transport users. This line operates on the route to the city centre, with stops at Avinguda Gabriel Alomar-Sindicat, Plaça Espanya-Intermodal Station, Balanguera, Passeig Mallorca, Jaume III, and Plaça Cort.

Mayor of Palma José Hila said: “This free service is indicative of the town hall’s commitment to sustainable mobility and the fight against climate change”.

This development, as well as others such as Bicipalma, pedestrianised streets and out-of-centre car parks will allow people to leave their cars at home. “Space has to be gained for people in the city centre. This measure will also help retailers in the centre, as many people will take the bus to do their shopping”, reports Majorca Daily Bulletin.

Line 2 departs every half hour from 7am to 8.30pm, Monday to Friday.

However, if the free service will be successfull, the town hall will extend it to weekends as well.
