Sightseeing tours in Benidorm - Bus Turistico - SUSPENDED
24th October 2022 The town hall of Benidorm has finally put a stop to the business which has been running the "tourist bus" around the town for almost 20 years, without paying the town hall or ratepayers for the business authorisation to do so.
A similar business, the one that was running the "tourist train", was paying 182,000€ a year to carry out its business activities, the company that ran the bus pictured, only paid into public funds the sum of 6,000€ a year, for the use of three bus stops to pick up and unload passengers.
There were also concerns over the exhaust fumes from the 22-year-old diesel vehicle being used.
There will now be an opportunity for tenders from companies that want to run the service.
