The M-131 line that covers the route between Malaga and Cártama will now have a new bus adapted for people with reduced mobility. The Malaga Area Metropolitan Transport Consortium (CTMAM) has included the new vehicle on this route, which is used by 38 per cent more passengers since it was modified in September 2021, according to Javier Berlanga, the manager of the consortium.
The service was increased from 28 to 35 trips from Monday to Friday, while on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays, it was increased from 24 to 35: the service also serves the Hospital Clínico de Málaga and the Campus de Teatinos of the University of Malaga. Likewise, the travel time between Cártama Pueblo and Malaga was reduced to 30 minutes.
The 13-metre-long bus, which has USB ports to allow passengers to recharge their mobile phones, is adapted to the EURO 6-E environmental regulations and has the capacity for 45 seated passengers. Carmen Casero, the territorial delegate for Development, Articulation of Territory and Housing, said the investment in the new vehicle reached more than 250,000 euros.
“This vehicle comes to renew, make more sustainable and improve the quality of the service of the M-131 line,” the delegate said. She also highlighted that “the demand for passengers on this public transport line has grown well above of the average of the rest of the metropolitan lines”.
