The Governing Council has authorized the granting of subsidies to the companies Autocares Espuña, SL and Autocares López Fernández SL to guarantee the provision of public bus transport service in the towns of Aledo, Totana and Caravaca de la Cruz, for an amount overall of 89,645 euros.
It is about guaranteeing the maintenance of public transport in an area with demographic and economic characteristics similar to a rural environment and with less accessibility to large population centers and to the main public services (educational and health).
These particularities mean that its exploitation does not cover the minimum service costs, less than 100,000 euros a year, and is a concession of weak traffic.
The objective of this subsidy of the Community is to compensate the economic deficit and guarantee the right to mobility of Murcia and to promote and improve public transport.
Subsidized lines of weak traffic in the bus concessions MUR-004 (Caravaca de la Cruz-Nerpio), MUR-006 (Caravaca-Cañada de la Cruz), MUR-048 (Caravaca-Lorca) and MUR-56 ( Aledo-Totana), to allow the neighbors of these localities to access essential public services in that region.
