STAFF REPORTER
BUS line No. 3, running between Pont d'Inca in Palma and Illetes, swelled its ranks yesterday when the service was presented with two brand new vehicles. Costing 570'000 euros each, the buses are a full 18 metres in length, with a capacity to carry 104 passengers and incorporating special facilities for those needing to travel in wheelchairs. The new additions will mean that a bus will be running every seven minutes on this route through Palma. The occasion was hosted yesterday by the regional Minister for Public Works and Transport, Mabel Cabrer (pictured left). She was accompanied by the mayor of Palma, Catalina Cirer who said that the acquisition had been the result of an agreement signed between the Balearic government and Palma City Council last May. At the same time, Cirer confirmed that the line, which had previously only gone as far as Cas Catala, would indeed now run once more as far as Illetes. The move has come through popular demand from bus users in the Calvia area.
