in "size" it is a very small station but in importance, it is great.
It is just a new "little stop" that commuter and regional trains (they stop in all small villages but can take 300km) will make in the centre of the city.

Instead of crossing the city corner to corner, they will give the chance to those users to take a train here.

Furthermore, it is possible to take it and connect with a high speed train.

With less trains they have made more services thanks that now it doesn't matter the type of train while being in the middle of the city.

As an explanation:

Zaragoza-Delicias is central station for long distance trains (high speed - AVE) and buses
Zaragoza-Goya is the new station located in the city centre
Zaragoza-Portillo and Miraflores are located inside Zaragoza
Casetas and Utebo are located 14 km and 10 km away from Zaragoza.

All trains that go only Casetas-Miraflores are the commuter train we had until last week (and tickets were available only for them).

Rest of trains are regional trains departing or arriving Zaragoza. They indicate where they come or go, and depending of way, you can use them for more or less stations.

As an example, the first train at Casetas (7:05) is a regional train that comes from Castejón de Ebro, more than 100 km away. Since there, you can ask a regional ticket to go to Zaragoza.
But after Casetas station runs as a commuter train and both tickets are allowed inside the train.
http://maps.google.es/maps?saddr=cas...=h&mra=ls&z=10



The second train (departure 7:39 from Casetas) is a commuter train that runs only Casetas-Miraflores

New update about second phase of Line 1 Zaragoza Tramway














Paraíso square

by alserror Apr 2012



It is not easy to see in the photo but rails direction north are finished and direction south almost finished except the ten metres where cars and buses run. When the rails will be finished, the traffic will change and will finish those ten metres.

It could be the hardest point in all the phase.



Aragón sq.


Stop "Plaza de Aragón"

The stop is being finished and it is the first one in this phase to have the shelter on works.

What is the public opinion about the tram? What do people think about tram taking away traffic lanes from cars?

All kind of opinions. Really they do not avoid to go anywhere without car, but it is restricted as well as last year you had main avenues and now only one lane, and maybe you have to turn by small streets.
But you can go by car anywhere.

there is a special point to take care... The tramway goes, mainly by the left lane. In the tramway you can enter/exit even by right or left depending the stop.

In a two lanes street, the left lane will be faster. Think in someone who stops where it is forbidden and everyone going to left lane, or just someone wants to turn right and will stop all cars besides.
Tramway goes by the fastest lane and save time in that order.

there is a lot of people who needs to take the car for making some little bussiness... maybe they hate the public transport. Obviously, they have more difficults today, but there is a lot of people who do not use public transport one year ago and today they use it (tramway has more passengers than bus in that corridor after one year).

Here you have the Zaragoza bus map where the point with black line the tramway route (current service, not the part on works)

http://www.tuzsa.es/tuzsa_frm_verdescarga.php?ref=888 (and click in "Plano general...")

As you can see, there are few lines on city centre as well as they have been moved because works. As far as new tramway lines will be open, old bus lines will dissapear.

What it is known is that line 23-north matches with the tramway prolongation and C2 absolutely matches with it.

Probably the line 23 will go (after the tram line will be completely inaugurated) through the actual line 20 route, and line 20 will disappear. Line C2 might also disappear.

Maps:

Tram map


Line 20 map


Line 23 map (before works)


Line C2 map (before works)

As you can see, the north part of line 23 and the line C2 goes exactly through it will go the tram now in works

The line will be operative before 23rd April 2013, and it might be on trials (in the city center) in summer.
