Following complaints from residents of some of the smaller towns and villages in the region, a new bus service has been approved by the Generalitat Valenciana.
The residents of the municipalities of Alcosser de Planes, Quatretondeta, Fageca, Famorca, Tollos, Benimassot, Millena, Gorga, Balones, Benifallim, Penàguila and Alcoleja asked for a bus service to take them to Alcoy and Cocentaina.
The new project also includes the recently inaugurated Muro-L’Orxa line and the route between Banyeres and Muro, passing through Bocairent, Alfafara and Agres.
The regional bus between Alcoy and Muro continues to be the main axis of this inter-municipal transport network. This service improvement offer also includes recovering the Alcoy-Villena service and maintaining the route between Banyeres and Alcoy.
Most trips made by buses to link small municipalities with large ones will be on the weekdays, as specified in the project. In the document, also, by 2020, the integration of school lines with the regular service is envisaged to optimize resources and expand the travel offer to the residents of El Comtat and l’Alcoià
