The new Marina Baixa urban transport concession awarded by the Generalitat Valenciana improves the bus service between Vila Joiosa and the rest of the region's towns.
The new urban transport service in Marina Baixa has already started, which the Generalitat Valenciana has awarded to Avanza Movilidad Levante, the subsidiary in Alicante of the Avanza road passenger transport group.
This regional government concession improves the bus service that connects Benidorm with Alfàs del Pi, Altea, Beniardà, Benifat, Benimantel, Bolulla, Callosa d'En Sarrià, Confrides, Finestrat, Castell de Guadalest, La Nucia, Orxeta, Polop, Relleu, Sella, Tàrbena and Vila Joiosa, as well as some connections between these municipalities using 10 lines.
Vila Joiosa thus achieves more connections with the rest of the towns in the region and increases the frequency of the urban transport service between Vila Joiosa and Benidorm. The new route connects the city center, from the Parque de la Barbera stop, on Carrer Huit de Maig, to the Benidorm intermodal station, on Carrer de Francisco Llorca Antón, where you can access the tram metropolità d 'Alicante.
The bus service goes to the Hospital Comarcal Marina Baixa, La Cala and Carrer d'Esperanto stops in the centre of Benidorm, more frequently on both working days and public holidays. The bus service departs from La Barbera Park to Benidorm Intermodal Station from Monday to Saturday every 30 minutes from 7.30am to 1.30am. And transport services on Sundays and public holidays are from 8.30 in the morning until 10.30 in the evening.
This new public transport service offered by the Generalitat Valenciana will serve almost 200,000 people from 18 municipalities in the Marina Baixa. This measure is part of a shock plan to improve the passenger transport service, which was a vindication of a large part of the mayors of the Marina Baixa region.
