Island Government activates the ten+VAO app to promote car-sharing
The Island Government, in collaboration with Metrotenerife and Titsa, launches the plan ‘Pilotos Pioneros ten+VAO’ to promote the use of car-sharing. This is the fifth measure of the initiative ‘Revoluciona tu forma de moverte’ wich offers discounts and advantages on the bus and tram to travel throughout the island.
The president of the Island Government highlighted that it is estimated that nine out of 10 vehicles that circulate early in the morning are only occupied by the driver. He informed also that ten+VAO system has been awarded by the Global Light Rail Awards, the sector’s most important awards for excellence and innovation, in the categories of ‘Best Environmental and Sustainability Initiative’ and ‘Vision of the Year’.
The director of the Island Mobility, Miguel Becerra, remembered that ten+VAO joins the rest of the actions presented so far, wich are the Ten+Infantil, Bono Residente Canario and the discount for the Youth Pass and the Metropolitan Monthly Pass, which encourage the citizenship to use the public transports and to adopt a sustainable mobility.
The new ten+VAO is available in the ten+movil app and the user will receive advantages the same day of the shared trip:
-driver and passengers: 4 free journeys in the metropolitan area public transport
-driver: free parking in the intermodal station of Santa Cruz and La Laguna

The journeys to the metropolitan area, both from the North and South of the Island, must be at least 13 kilometres. Users can depart from the same point or join along the route, but in order to enjoy the benefits, the three passengers must travel the distance together.
Last week the system ten+VAO has been awarded with the Global Light Rail in the category of ‘Best Environmental and Sustainability Initiative’ and with the special mention as ‘Vision of the Year’.
The president of the Island Government and the Metrotenerife, Carlos Alonso, and the managing director of Metrotenerife, Andrés Muñoz de Dios, attended the award ceremony organized by Mainspring, the publishing company of the railway sector. The Global Light Rail Awards are the most important prizes in railway excellence and innovation.
