Palma.—After all the teething problems Palma's metro had, such as serious leaks which led to its closure for months no sooner had it been opened by the former Partido Popular government, it was revealed yesterday that it is the only metro service in Spain which is losing passengers.

A report published by the National Statistics Institute yesterday showed that, year-on-year, February passenger figures were down by over 15 percent while, on average, all the other suburban metro services in Spain enjoyed a 2.3 percent increase in passengers.

What is more, since the start of the year, those services have experienced a 3.3 percent rise in metro passengers while here in Palma, passenger figures for the first three months of the year are down by 3.3 percent. There was much talk about extending the metro line instead of building the proposed tram, but the figures do not warrant the government wasting any more public funds on the service.
