The bus linking Sa Ràpita and Es Trenc began operating on 1 July. The service is part of the 530 line that has been operating between Palma and Sa Ràpita since 1 June and has now been extended to Es Trenc.
The shuttle bus will leave from the Club Náutico de Sa Ràpita (Yacht Club) stop and go to Ses Covetes, a stop just 250 m from the Natural Park. The service, which will run until 31 August, provides 11 outbound and 11 inbound journeys from Monday to Sunday.
The first bus leaves Sa Ràpita at 10.10 and the last leaves Ses Covetes at 18.45. This year there is one more return bus than last year. For more information on timetables and fares, please check here.
Besides this shuttle bus, the TIB network has also been providing the 505 line service linking Santanyí, from the Na Ravandella stop, with s’Almunia and Cala Llombards since 1 June. A shuttle bus linking Port de Pollença with the Formentor Peninsula is also expected to start operating this summer.
Shuttle buses are a sustainable transport alternative to alleviate traffic jams in Majorca’s natural areas in the summer months. This measure, taken by the Regional Ministry for Land, Energy and Transport and managed by the Majorcan Transport Consortium, makes it easier for both the island’s residents and visitors to go to tourist areas.
