The Christmas return home by train of Malaga people who live in Madrid peaked on Wednesday afternoon, coinciding with the reopening of mobility between regions.
Of the six trains scheduled from the Spanish capital to the Costa del Sol, five operated in a two train unit configurations, which meant doubling the normal number of seats.
However the railway operator said that the demand was not enough to add extra services to the regular schedules.
Over the festive period Junta de Andalucía regional government has authorised - without the need to present any documentation - the entry and exit of people to the region to “travel to the habitual residence of relatives and close friends” with the aim of allowing family reunions at Christmas.
For this reason, yesterday there were no police controls at the María Zambrano station.
There were some very emotional moments in the foyer of the Malaga terminal, where some cases complete families went to greet their loved ones who they had not seen for months.
The return home of the Malaga people for Christmas was also evident across the province as reported by the traffic control centre. But they reported that circulation was “flowing” and there were no delays.
