Cartel "Asesoramiento en proyectos de movilidad sostenible", por Metrotenerife

Based on accumulated experience, fruit of the work of our 200 collaborators, and on the positive results obtained, that allow us to operate efficiently and sustainably (99.7% availability of service – a cost coverage ratio of over 100%), we offer a line of technical assistance for the various phases of an integral mobility plan:









Technical Assistance Service

Metrotenerife was founded to launch an alternative means of transport in the form of railway lines on the island of Tenerife. To do so:

  • We drew up and developed all necessary plans and studies for the design and actual execution of an effective and efficient Guided Transport network, and for the building of other facilities that would provide auxiliary services for the operation of the network.
  • We designed, built and put in motion the first two tram lines in the metropolitan area of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, which contribute to alleviating traffic congestion, facilitate and meet the mobility needs of the population of Tenerife and of the millions of visitors to the island.
  • We drew up transport plans and projects for the execution of two high performance railway lines for Tenerife – 80 kilometres on the south side of the island and 40 kilometres on the north side, 13 interchanges and workshop and depot facilities.
  • We have operated and maintained Tramlines 1 and 2 (12.5 and 3.6 km respectively) since 2007, with a passenger load of 14 million passengers a year.
