TICKET prices on Palma de Mallorca’s City Sightseeing bus could increase by between €1 and €2.
Currently the cost is between €10 and €12, with residents getting a 50 per cent discount.
“It is one of the cheapest cities,” said Marcos Ybarra from the tourist company.
They are hoping to get approval for this price hike – only the second since the company began operations in the city – from the town hall.
City Sightseeing also are looking into offering a route to see the main museums in Palma.
This is in a bid to get more clients who want an alternative to sun and beach and something that can be on offer all year round.
Their proposed bus route in Palma de Mallorca would go from Plaza de la Reina to Palau March passing by Baluard and Fundacio Pilar I Joan Miro. Currently, bus line 50 offers a route from which one can see Antoni Maura (Almudaina), plaza Port Santa Catalina (Es Baluard), Auditorium Portopi, the Spanish Village and Bellver Castle.
City Sightseeing currently transports 200,000 visitors a year in Palma de Mallorca, earning around €2million.
The tourist company is present in 100 cities around the world – of which 10 are in Spain – and transport more than 12 million passengers a year.
