LAUNCHED only a month ago, a local bus service has proved so popular that it’s already getting an extension to the route.
After a trial period, the circular service that links Dénia and Pedrera Montgó will be extended after 117 people used it in 15 days.
Following suggestions from both residents and cross-party political groups in the municipality, the extra route and bus stops began on Monday and will take in the area around Marquesa.
The bus stops on the revised route are: Start from la Plaza Jaume I, next to the Centro de Salud Pública; IES Historiador Chabás; Pedrera Hospital; Coll de Pous-Centauro; calle Atamante; calle Hebe; Coll de Pous; Coll de Pous-Centauro; junction of Padre Pedro; junction of la cañada de Santa Lucía and camino de Merle (up the hill); Corral de Calafat; restaurante Galeretes; junction of la cañada de Santa Lucía and camino de Merle (down the hill); urbanización Al-Khalif; Lidl-Consumo supermarkets; junction of calle Diana with avenida Joan Fuster; avenida de Juan Chabás; Mercadona, to the end of the route where it began in Plaza Jaume I.
The bus makes four trips every day leaving at 8am, 2pm, 4pm and 8pm with a total journey time of 35 minutes and a flat fare of only €1.
