Palma de Mallorca got a Tiny Metro Network opened in 2007
In the Mediterranean sea beside Barcelona, there is a group of tropical islands that belongs to Spain and one of them is Mallorca. Here you find a city named Palma de Mallorca which with the surroundings got 401,270 in population. This city hides a Metro system that is quite new. For transit enthusiasts, this small but very new Metro system is a nice visit.
Palma de Mallorca got two Metro Lines M1 and M2
M1 is the real Metro line. In fact its a more underground line with only one station on the surface named Son Sardinia. This one is also linked with the train line that runs between Palma de Mallorca and Sóller which is the world’s oldest electrified train line.
The M1 line got 9 stations and links the enter of Palma de Mallorca with UIB University. The center station is named Placa d’Espanya and M1 line shares 3 stations with the second M2 line. They are named Placa d’Espanya, Jacint Verdaguer, and Son Costa – Son Fortesa. M2 is a Metro line that also shares tracks with the train lines going to Inca Sa Pobla Manacor. M2 line runs between Placa d’Espanya and Marratxí.
It is really nice to see such a big city has Metro lines. But with so many people living in this city. This city should have many more transit possibilities. There is plans to expand the Metro Palma de Mallorca to Aeropuerto which is the main airport on Mallorca. Also, the main station is a bit hard to find if you don’t know Spanish.
Santa Cruz de Tenerife on the Canary Islands got a nice Tram Network opened in 2007
We are still jumping from island to island that belongs to Spain. So, now we have reached Tenerife, which is an island that is part of the Canary Islands which belongs to Spain. Distrita has written about Santa Cruz de Tenerife that got about 360,000 in population in a nice tram review of Tranvia De Tenerife experience here.
Santa Cruz de Tenerife got two Tram Lines T1 and T2
T1 line is the tram line that connects the outskirts city La Laguna (La Trinidad) with Santa Cruz. Santa Cruz de Tenerife and La Laguna are two major Canary Islands cities in the northern parts of Tenerife with less touristic visitors and are a nice line to explore if you are looking for a more affordable experience.
This tram network on Tenerife consists of 2 tram lines. They are operated by MetroTenerife which runs both of the tram lines T1 and T2.
T1 line is the longest line, while the T2 line is a very short line. Both T1 and T2 lines meet at ElCardonal and Hospital Universitario stations. La Laguna can be reached by taking the T1 line which reaches La Trinidad station that is linked to La Laguna station. The Santa Cruz de Tenerife
By visiting this area of Tenerife, Distrita can guarantee that you will meet more locals than tourists. Distrita recommends you to visit these two towns and especially La Laguna! It’s a beauty! This is a very beautiful Canary Islands city up in the mountains of Tenerife island. It sits not that far from the northern airport on the island also, but at the same time connected with Santa Cruz de Tenerife by Tranvia de Tenerife.
Parla outside of Madrid got an Unknown Tram Loop Line opened in 2007
In the southern part of Madrid, Spain. You’ll find a town named Parla which is also counted as a municipality of Madrid. The tram system here got 15 stations and it was opened in 2007.
Almost no tourists know about its existence as there isn’t any info mentioned about it in this Wikipedia article that we found at the time of writing this article. You find this circle tram network approximately 20km from Madrid. With a population of around 264,182 population, it is nice that this area finally got a transit option.
You can reach the place with a C4 local train that stops at Parla Centro Bulevar Norte. The total length of this tram line is 8.2km and it runs in the circle in both directions.
To get here you need a B2 Zone ticket that is valid in the area. Also, you can use a regional travel pass. The tickets you have purchased are also compatible with the bus lines in the Parla area.
