New Bus Services For Playa Blanca

Public bus services connecting Lanzarote's two main resorts of Puerto del Carmen and Playa Blanca have just been improved, with a new hourly service introduced from today on bus route 61. And with a new route altogether to connect Playa Blanca directly with Arrecife.

The new number 60 bus, running between Arrecife and Playa Blanca, will also have an hourly service, running straight from the capital to the southern resort without taking a detour into Puerto del Carmen.

These two new hourly services will be available from Monday to Friday, with a slightly reduced service at weekends and on public holidays, when the frequency will be decreased to one bus every two hours.

The Arrecife to Playa Blanca service starts from 06.00 and runs until 21.00, with a special detour to Las Breñas for the bus that leaves Arrecife at 14.00. The reverse route begins in Playa Blanca at 06.50 in the morning, with buses after 08.00 leaving on the hour until 22.00 in the evening.

The route for this new line will start at the Arrecife bus station and then stop at Playa Honda, outside the Ferreteria Tias, at Los Lirios in Tias, at Macher and at the Puerto Calero crossroads, then at the church in Uga, the Yaiza supermarket, reaching its final destination in Playa Blanca at the bus station and the ferry harbour.

The increased frequency of the service between Puerto del Carmen and Playa Blanca will also improve connections to Puerto Calero, providing much greater ease of access between these tourist spots.

The bus service 61 which runs between Puerto del Carmen and Playa Blanca commences at 07.45 in the morning and runs until 22.35, from Monday to Friday, with a bus leaving every hour. This route will stop at the Hotel Jameos Playa in Matagorda, at Costa Mar, the Hotel San Antonio, at the Casino, the Centro Comercial Atlantico, the Biosfera shopping centre, Puerto Calero, the church at Uga, the Aljibe in Yaiza and finally the bus station and ferry port in Playa Blanca.

The return route begins at 08.30 every weekday morning and runs until 23.20. On Saturdays, Sundays and fiestas the service will be reduced to one bus every two hours, starting at 08.15 and finishing at 21.50 for the Puerto del Carmen to Playa Blanca service and beginning at 09.00 and ending at 22.30 for the reverse journey.
