THE Murcia region’s Minister for Development, Pedro Rivera, has announced a grant of just under €80,000 for improvements to one of the most used bus services in the area.
The €79,300 is part of a multi-million investment in public transport infrastructure for this New Year, and will be spent exclusively on the 52 route which links the Urbanisation of Altorreal in Molina de Segura to the city of Murcia.
Since the route was set up, a total of 30,000 people have used the service and has given the 10,000 that live in Molina de Segura a life-line and they are being asked for their suggestions and proposals to improve the route even more.
Pedro Rivera stressed the regional government’s commitment to ensure that everyone has access to basic transport services that many people rely on to travel to work, school, hospital and clinics on a daily basis. He also highlighted the particular investment on the 52 bus route that has proved to be both popular and successful.
The buses leave the Plaza Circular in Murcia towards Altorreal on Monday to Friday are at 6.45am, 1.15pm and 10.30pm, with the journeys in the opposite direction leaving at 7.05am, 1.35pm and 9.25pm. The Saturday schedule is 9am, 6pm and 10.30pm from Murcia and 9.20am, 6.20pm and 8.50pm from Molina del Segura.
