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.
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.
Tenerife taxis where a price idea should be given prior to the ride when you aski 'Cuanto cuesta hasta Los Cristianos' for example or wherever you need to go.
It's not good enough to know distances or what price is normally charged for it, as drivers may mention a traffic jam or the like which might not be true because he would like to take a longer route. You can always check with your phone the following

Below, not only what's cast in stone but the entire surviving building gives testimony that transport by buses existed on the biggest Canary Island as far back as 1888.
