Horários do Funchal- Transportes Públicos SA (Yellow City Bus Company) has announced that from Friday the 19th of July the 00 – Linha Eco will be renamed the 05 – Linha Cidade; there will be no changes to the route.
Also, there will be a new route, 05A – Eco-City Line, which will travel between the Old Town and Largo da Paz. The company will be using minibuses for both the 05 and 05A, thus providing transport for those suffering from reduced mobility. The minibuses can also carry two wheelchair bound passengers. To make it easier for passengers, neither the 05 or the 05A route have fixed bus stops, and those wishing to catch either bus only have to signal for the bus to stop.
The new bus route initiative is part of the CIVITAS DESTINATIONS programme that Horários do Funchal is part of which aims to improve the mobility of both residents and tourists within the city centre, as well as providing transport for those with mobility problems.
