The TIB bus

The Director General of Mobility and Land Transport, Jaume Mateu, and the Managing Director of the Mallorca Transport Consortium, Maarten van Bemmelen, today presented the increase in the TIB network’s intercity bus service, which will come into effect this Saturday, 1st April.

The high demand for the service due to the improved connections that have been incorporated into the bus network in recent times has increased in recent months due to the free public transport. During the first quarter of this year, 2,631,053 journeys were made on the TIB bus network, 67.81% more than in 2022 and 105.09% more than in 2019, the year before the new concessions were introduced.

As of Saturday, most of the network’s current lines will be reinforced with an increase in frequency and timetables and, in many cases, the timetables will be unified to offer the same service throughout the week. The trunk lines between the areas with the highest demand and Palma will have a different frequency, for example, line 103, Santa Ponça – Palma, will increase from 22 to 39 journeys from Monday to Saturday; line 104, Magaluf – Palma, will have a service every twenty minutes; line 204, Port de Sóller – Palma, a bus every thirty minutes from Monday to Sunday, as well as line 302, Can Picafort – Palma, which will also have a bus every thirty minutes most of the day, and the same for line 501, Manacor – Campos – Palma. In the Llevant area, line 401, Cala Millor – Palma, will extend its route to include the Bon Temps stop and the new Cala Millor Centro stop, and will also significantly increase the service.

The new timetables bring forward the start of the summer lines; thus, from Saturday, lines 231, Port de Sóller-Alcúdia; 315, sa Pobla – Bahía de Alcúdia – Inca will be in operation; 324, Can Picafort – Alcúdia; 422, Cala Mesquida – Cala Rajada; 423, Font de sa Cala – Cala Rajada; 424, Cala Rajada – Porto Cristo; 425, Costa dels Pins – Porto Cristo; 427, Cala Mendia – Porto Cristo and 505, Cala Pi – Palma. The four airport lines, the Aerotib A11, Camp de Mar – Airport; A32, Can Picafort – Airport; A42, Cala Bona – Airport and A51, Campos – Airport, will also begin service.

On the other hand, the new line 103 B, Costa de la Calma – Santa Ponça – Palma, which will reinforce the service in the Ponent area. On the one hand, it will complement the service offered by line 107 between Costa de la Calma and Palma, with a significant increase in the number of journeys, and on the other, it will directly connect the direction from Costa de la Calma to the centre of Santa Ponça.
