The new bus station for Playa and Puerto de Mogán was officially inauguratedyesterday, on 1 of February 2017, by Antonio Morales, the president of the island’s governing Cabildo de Gran Canaria, together with the mayor of Mogán, Onalia Bueno, and local counsellor for transport Francisco Trujillo. The almost 90,000 bus journeys that travel in or out of this beautiful coastal enclave each month can now officially enjoy the newly constructed facilities at the town’s main bus station.
Completion of the construction work brings a great improvement to public transport services and to their quality and is most important for Mogán, but also to the island, as the new bus station will be used by around one million people a year.
After almost two years paralyzed by the bankruptcy of the previous contract winner, the Cabildo de Gran Canaria restarted the work last September by adding a budget of €163,000, which raised the total cost of the project to €735,000, co-financed by various funds.
The new bus stand has an area of over 2,000 square meters paved for pedestrian use and for buses. It has 7 covered platforms, a service building with rest rooms, a locker room for drivers, a kiosk and toilets, including for people with disabilities.
8 bus routes operated by the company Global Salcai-Utinsa, on average 208 regular daily departures, connect with the capital, Las Palmas, and with the main population centres of the east, southeast and south of Gran Canaria, as well as with the lovely Pueblo de Mogán and of course Gran Canaria Airport.
