The government yesterday unveiled a new bus-rail public transport plan for Marratxi.
The aim is to link Marratxi's main villages with the railway station and buses will run 16 times a day along the route from Portol to the railway station, via Sa Cabaneta and Festival Park. There will also be a number of bus links from various villages to the Es Pont d´Inca Nou railway station.
Marratxi has become a large commuter zone for Palma and the government believes that by promoting the use of public transport the volume of traffic between Palma and Marratxi can be greatly reduced.
