THE Marbella Council has an ongoing policy of promoting sustainable public transport and reducing the amount of pollution that it creates.
To this end, it has added two efficient new buses to its fleet (one large and one small) which it is claimed will reduce the carbon emissions by 28,000 kilos per annum and will help the council in its pursuit of sustainable mobility.
The number of passengers using the Marbella buses is steadily increasing year on year and there are 63,000 holders of free mobility cards.
According to a council spokesperson, the bus service continued to operate efficiently during the height of the Covid-19 and now is able to operate at 85 per cent of previous capacity whilst ensuring that passengers observe proper social distancing.
The cost of these two Mercedes buses was €390,000 which has been paid for by bus franchisee Avanza and each comes with WiFi connection and mobile phone charging points.
