  • The 6B route will connect Bello Horizonte with the La Cañada shopping centre, passing through the centre and Miraflores

A new bus route will start operating in Marbella this Saturday, running from the Bello Horizonte area to La Cañada shopping centre. The route will also pass through the town centre and the Miraflores neighbourhood.

The 6B route will allow residents of Miraflores to get to the shopping centre in as little as seven minutes. Buses will leave from Bello Horizonte every 30 minutes.

This new route has been created in response to an increase in registered bus users of 150 per cent in the Miraflores area.

According to municipal spokesperson, Féliz Romero, the town hall is "leading the way" in personal mobility, following the introduction of free travel for residents, the modernisation of the fleet of buses and the creation of new routes, including changes to routes 2 and 6 which mostly covered the same areas.
