By the way, last week we had over the table the project for line 2.

It would start in summer 2015 and will join the city east-west with an Y.

there are three options in the eastern side of the city to be considered by town hall.

Juslibol is a 3000 town very very close to Zaragoza and part of its municipality.

A peaceful town with narrow streets and no traffic. There is one bus line every 30 minutes that has to go over those streets.

Furthermore, the L1 tramway has a stop called Juslibol, about 500 m ahead of first houses.

This is Line 2 of Tramway project.



(source: heraldo.es)

Western side is approved and eastern side is only known that would be an Y. The red stretch is assured and there will be another one (purple, light blue or green in the map)

Currently the Line 1 goes south-north (and fully operating since March 2013). About 500m between Plaza de España and Cesar Augusto will be common for both lines (Line 1 comes from the south before Plaza de España, and turns north at Cesar Augusto)



I leave this official link
http://www.zaragoza.es/ciudad/viapub...ea2tranvia.htm

with a greeeeeat deal of information. Every stretch considered appear there. They take consideration about distance to buildings, curves and so on.

I apologize because there is no English version but if you open them, there are a lot of maps, and few text.



Obviously any question you can have... just ask here

Este tranvía también debió de tener algún problemilla, porque estuvo parado un minutillo en la parada después de haber cerrado puertas. En esta foto, yo ya estaba en el andén y aún estaba saliendo, mientras que las dos anteriores están hechas desde la salida de San Blas:

Zaragoza railway station will have new services next week:

- Third connection to Seville without calling at Madrid. Runs trhough until Cordoba. It will departs quite early and will come back late, being third train from Zaragoza to Andalucia

- Early connection to Madrid and late back

- Direct connection to Alicante (in fact it is just enlarging a current service but will be a train calling at Cuenca, Albacete, Villena and Alicante too, so more direct services)

Nowadays it has HSL to Barcelona, Figueres V (border with France), Cuenca, Albacete and Alicante (next week), Cordoba, Sevilla and Malaga, and Madrid, and other good connections in the classic line.

Several news about Zaragoza public transport:

- Due to new bus network, there are less buses in the city as well as part of them have been replaced by tramways.
Negotiations between trade unions and company broke down last August looking for an agreement between both sides.

Company sacked 153 workers (mainly bus drivers)
Workers started this Monday a strike. Nowadays it is from 12:30 to 15:30 but there will be special dates with special schedules.

Until 12:30 and after 15:30 all buses run as usual. Between those hours only 50% of buses are on the street running.

- We have noticed a lack of information about anything in the service from the company side. They were quite good sending messages by social networks or in their web but after summer they seem to be gone.

- On the other side, tramway doesn't make strike. So, from 12:30 to 15:30, you will find a bus service collapsed and a regular service of tramway. Furthermore commuter trains keeps on as usual.

And for the future:

- Starting October 4th, Zaragoza will have its main days for more than a week. All years we have had tramway service non-stop 24h. This year they keep and they will upgrade frequencies to 5 minutes all the day!!!. (up to last year they were every 8 minutes from 00:00 to 07:00 but they upgrade them this year).

There is a great resort near the last station in the south side of the line and another one (that will have tramway service as first time this year after April starting service there) four stops before the last one in the northern side of the line.


- Due to lack of passengers for taxi service, they have voted to keep updated fares in 2014 (that is, a small increase of them) but each taxi car will stop two additional days more every month.
They have considered to stop several taxi cars having not so many in the streets and taking the better advantage of taxi demand.

Amazing video.

In the left (ahead) the Pilar Basilica
In the right the big wheel that we are having these major days in Zaragoza

Tramway operates 24h these days and for 10 hours per day, 5 minutes frequencies (usually only 6 hours per day with those frequencies)

The tramway line crosses the river besides the big wheel.

We start today our major days (until October 13th).

Be sure you will have more news and pictures about us

Nice video about tramway.

By the way, Big wheel besides the river (it was the SSC banner on October 12th) was supposed to be only for one month and it is known that it will remain there until January 12th or so, and thinking in a bigger one.

Good news for Zaragoza Urban transport.

Starting next week, frequencies 13:30 to 16:30 will be reinforced (I would state that almost peak hours but not sure yet).


Furthermore, bus service is on strice 08:00 to 10:00 and 20:00 to 22:00. Seems to be stopped in next days (after near two months of strike) due to an agreement.

Zaragoza tramway increased its frequencies yesterday between 13:30 and 16:30 or so (I would state that 13:00 to 17:00).

They have a 5,5 minutes frequency in that branch. That is, one tramway after 5 minutes, next one after 6 minutes, next one after 5 minutes, later 6 minutes and so on.

They are 17 tramways on service whilst neccessary 18 for a 5 minutes frequency. Thus 5,5 minutes.

When service started they had a 7 minutes frequency and they noticed that it was a peak hour also.

Considering the Gran Via stop, direction south, the timetables are these ones:

Gran Vía

5:22 to 7:20, 20 minutes frequency
7:20 to 10:30, 5 minutes frequency
10:30 a 13:18, 7 minutes frequency
13:18 a 17:26, 5,5 frequency
17:26 a 20:26, 5 minutes frequency
20:26 a 22:26, 7 minutes frequency
22:26 a 0:22, 15 minutes frequency



In my opinion, the next branch to increase is on saturday and sunday 12:00 to 15:00


It is the fourth frequency increasing after service started.
