Five new bus routes are being introduced by the Baleares government later this year.
Planned to run from the airport to popular tourist destinations, they will cut the need to travel into Palma on local EMT bus route 1 in order to change onto a TIB bus to continue the journey onward to a resort.
The initial proposal has recently been revised following local protests about the limited number of stops. This has seen the extension of the route to Santa Ponsa onward to Paguera and then terminating at Camp de Mar. The other four routes will end in or near: Alcudia, Cala d'Or, Cala Millor and Magalluf.
The routes will be operated by Transabus and Arriva, although we're not sure which company will run what services just yet.
From tomorrow - March 1st - the Spring timetable for bus L102 comes into operation and we've noticed that a couple of times a day a new Express bus service runs from Andratx to Palma (and vice versa) missing out those stops in between - thus shaving about 25 minutes off the journey time.
