After the island’s Cabildo had to bail out Titsa Bus Company to the tune of €23 million last year, there are calls for a massive rethink.
Another €13 million was added to that figure from the regional government and Madrid, the total amount of public money used to keep the company operating has amounted to €36 million.

Critics say the company is over staffed and current routes are poorly-planned. TITSA was taken over by the Cabildo last year in a bid to streamline public transport provision in Tenerife following the entry into service of the tram link between the capital and La Laguna. The funding revelations call for changes at senior management levels in TITSA.
