Hospital and city links are being extended from today in El Campello on the Costa Blanca, after Vectalia announced it’s increasing the frequencies of the intercity bus lines 21 and C53.
THE company, which runs the intercity bus service has informed the council that with the entry of the health district into Phase 1 of de-escalation, it will increase the frequencies of lines 21 (El Campello-Alicante) and C53, which links to the San Juan hospital.
Both lines saw their daily services reduced by up to 50 per cent from mid-April, and from today they will resume 70 per cent activity.
The council “has insisted on several occasions to the Ministry of Land Policy, Public Works and Mobility, the need to change the frequencies.”
“In particular, the service that links El Campello daily with the nearest hospital, since there are many problems suffered by the population because the severe restrictions prevented the transfer of health personnel residing in El Campello, who use the bus to get to work,” said the council in a statement.
