Tenerife transport total guide

Most information online about Tenerife transport is about the local public bus services by Titsa. You already see their fully computerized green and white buses called Guaguas by the airports. However, there is so much more to mention than only shifting people and pets around on the island.

By the way, Puerto de la Cruz is finally getting its new Intercambiador which means a major bus station for important public commuting. Construction started in summer 2018 and was halfway up by March 2019. The old facility had become very unsafe due to unstable grounds. Nobody knows what will happen to the big, abandoned complex.

What's special about the modern days Guaguas

Those clean and modern vehicles even take people in wheelchairs into their cabins.  Bicycles and other large goods may be placed into a cargo hole. But you must tell the driver to open it for you before you leave the bus, otherwise he won't give you time to retrieve the luggage.

Wondering by the way, if the half size buses have the same possibilities for people that are not fully mobile.

I shall keep you posted.

Depicted below is a Tenerife tram, also called Travia or Metro.

It belongs to the same company like the Guaguas. This tram was introduced again as ultra modern version after about a century. As said before, no cash payment is possible with Tranvias.

This time it was meant to take much excess traffic off the road but it's still not sufficient.

A dream train transport and a compromise

  • The Tenerife government would very much love to introduce the single rail Transrapid train which is based on magnetism and doesn't need a driver. The maximum speed is 385kph. It will be 190kph slower than the French TGV.  It will cost roughly 3000 million Euros.
  • However, for time being as a compromise, a Freeway fast lane in high traffic zones can be used for cheaper joined transport between vehicles which is accessible via the Titsa mobile app.
