Transdev announces launch of new transit services in Estarreja, Portugal
With the launch of the Estarrejabus transit network in early February 2022, Transdev is now providing residents of the municipality of Estarreja with an important mobility solution.
Transdev has announced that the Estarrejabus transit network (Transportes Urbanos de Estarreja) – which is operated by Transdev – was launched in early February 2022, providing the municipality built along the banks of the Antuã River, near the Ria de Aveiro, with an important mobility solution.
The Estarrejabus transit network consists of seven lines – one for each workday, an urban circulator that operates during every workday and on Saturdays, as well as a circulator for the local industrial park, with the objective of transporting people to their place of employment.
Furthermore, the transit network also provides a transportation on-demand solution (TOD) for inhabitants of some of the less populated locations around Estarreja to travel on weekdays. The TOD service is key to shorten distances for the inhabitants of the municipality and to enable all of them to live productive and fulfilling lives.
“The design of this network is the result a high degree of collaboration with the PTA, in the sense that it was designed according to the real mobility needs of the population of Estarreja. This service is an asset for the people of Estarreja and aims to provide a better quality of life for the citizens,” said José Portelada, Operations Director of Transdev Portugal.
Estarrejabus is the embodiment of Transdev’s purpose to empower people’s freedom to move every day through safe, reliable and innovative transit solutions.
