Fuengirola is one of the most popular destinations on the Costa del Sol. With its easy access from Malaga Airport, as well as the fantastic public transport connections via rail or bus, it’s easy to see why this area is the number one choice for so many property buyers and holidaymakers alike.
Fuengirola’s unique clientele is perhaps some of the most diverse on the coast – a place where British, Irish, Nordic and German inhabitants live in harmony with the Spanish locals. This diverse and perhaps surprising range of nationalities is what makes Fuengirola a fantastic choice for investing in property and real estate.
Free Bus Services in Fuengirola
With sustainability at the forefront of everyone’s minds, Fuengirola has decided to upgrade its eco-credentials for 2023, by making 5 of the town’s bus routes entirely free from 1 January 2023. The Mayor of Fuengirola, Ana Mula, recently announced the news and explained that the initiative has been a personal electoral commitment which she is delighted to now put into place, in a bid to cut down on emissions and improve mobility in the town.
The free service will operate across five routes in the town of Fuengirola and will bring with it a fleet of more fuel and eco-friendly vehicles, co-financed by the European Union, as well as creating 22 new employment positions in the town. The fleet will also include three mini-buses adapted for people with reduced mobility. A mobile app is also being developed that will offer users information about the services, routes and timetables. The initiative has an overall investment of more than 30 million euros and will be valid for ten years. Great news for Fuengirola residents, holidaymakers, visitors and our planet!
Free Local Train Travel Across Spain
The fantastic news comes as Spain announced that they are to extend its free train travel initiative until the end of next year. Train operator Renfe is offering free tickets for travel on commuter trains and mid-distance regional lines between September 2022 and December 2023, to encourage a more comfortable, economic and sustainable method of transport within Spain.
