The Vice President of the Regional Government, Bel Busquets, together with the Regional Minister for Land, Energy and Mobility, Marc Pons, the Regional Minister for Finance and Public Administrations, Catalina Cladera, and the Mayor of Pollença, Miquel Àngel March, officially opened the stop in Port de Pollença today.
The new station, on Calle de la Tramuntana, is the departure point for the current routes Pollença – Inca – Palma and Alcúdia – Can Picafort – Levante area. The new stop also connects the bays of Alcúdia and Pollença with the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range (L354 Can Picafort-Port de Sóller, L355 Can Picafort-Sa Calobra) and with the Formentor Peninsula (L353 Can Picafort-Formentor) and accessibility will be enhanced by the future shuttle bus.
This set of stops replaces the stop on Calle Roger de Flor. The new location will help reduce journey times and minimise the impact on the urban area.
The new stop consists of four bays and is equipped with a sheltered area for a more comfortable user experience for inter-urban passengers. With this stop we are also introducing the new bus shelter model. This is a modular structure with seating that provides support for the lower back.
Work is in progress on the public toilets and these will be opened soon.
This project is a joint initiative between the Regional Government and the Pollença Town Council and has been financed by funds from the 2016 Plan for the Promotion of Sustainable Tourism. The construction work has cost 303,135.62 euros (including VAT). The Pollença Town Council has contributed 9.525% of the final amount.
