Drivers who park their vehicles in these car parks will be able to register their license plates in a parking meter where they will obtain a free ticket to travel by bus to the center, Rincón de Loix or La Cala, at no cost to their pockets.

The creation of this connection between these two dissuasive car parks and public transport is part of the Mobility Week. As explained by Mayor Toni Pérez “the initiative will be operational next Wednesday 22nd, Car-Free Day, and it is one more service that we offer to citizens and visitors to promote sustainable mobility”.

“Users of this service” added Pérez, “will be able to travel to the city center, Rincón de Loix or La Cala and then return to the place where they have parked their car. They are free roundtrip trips from these two car parks ”.

The initiative, in addition to "improving sustainable mobility" will also allow "business trips that occur from Monday to Friday and also on weekends to take advantage of this free connectivity that we put in place." 

Thus, from the parking lot on Avenida Beniardá-Estación del Tram it will be possible to connect through Line 1 with the center and Poniente. In the case of the bus station car park, this connects with the Rincón de Loix, center and La Cala through lines 3 and 11. The frequency of the buses is about 20 minutes, although the schedules may be consulted on the Avanza Group website: https://alicante.avanzagrupo.com/es .

Mobility Week began on the 16th in Benidorm with the presentation of a new single-platform road on Calle Condestable Zaragoza. A recovered area for pedestrians and sports practice has also been unveiled on Italia Street and the renovation and modernization of the Children's Traffic Park.

This week dedicated to Mobility will last until Wednesday 22nd, although prior events were held even before its start, such as the presentation of new charging points for electric vehicles, an application to manage car charges or the Mobility fair Sustainable Urban, Benimov.
