15th March  New Zones planned - The new zonal distribution allows to move from six to three zones and is working in a coordinated way to expand the TAM zone

New zonal map

The new tariff regulation includes a simplification of the zonal distribution of the TRAM d'Alacant by moving from the current six zones to three zones, plus two inter-county transition areas to avoid the rigidity of the zonical borders.

Currently, the six existing tariff zones give place to 21 possible zonal combinations and six different tariffs, depending on the number of areas traveled on a ferry. With the modification proposed, the three areas would correspond to the three districts for which the TRAM d'Alicant is circulating: L'Alacantí, Marina Baixa and Marina Alta.

With the new distribution of the TRAM d'Alacant the Zone A would cover the stops located in the municipal terms of Alicant, Sant Vicent del Raspeig and El Campello, to which the future expansion of the network would be added in the municipalities of Sant Jo An and Mutxamel.

However, until the expansion of the TAM area is completed, through the agreement with the other administrations involved, the stops of Amerador, Coveta Fumá, Cala Pitres and Venta Lanuza, belonging to the municipal term of El Campello, p they will remain integrated in Zone B.

Zone B would understand the stops of the municipalities of La Vila-joiosa, Benidorm, L'Alfàs del Pi and Altea, while Zone C would be integrated by the municipalities of Calp, Teulada, Gata de Gorgos, Benissa and Dénia.

Another novelty that presents the new structure is the inclusion of two inter-district transitions, which are established between Pla Barraques and Costera Pastor, in the south, and between Altea and Benissa in the north. Travels that take place between stops of each of these sections would have consideration for traveling made in a single area.

In the proposed model, there are only 6 possible zonal combinations depending on the trip made and, only three applicable fares: of one, two or three areas in which the 10 travel bonus will cost 8 euros, 12 euros and 20 euros, respectively very much.

Examples by municipalities

With the new zonal plan and the new fares that have been approved by the FGV Board of Directors and that will apply from the summer, for example, a person who wants to travel from the Lucentum stop in Alicante, to Benidorm or whatever to make a journey from El Albir to Dénia, it will start moving by two areas, instead of the current three. This will mean a 42% discount of the price of the Bonus 10, which will go from €21 to €12.

People wanting to travel from Sant Vicent del Raspeig to Altea will travel through the four current areas to travel for two. This will give them a 55% discount starting summer; and they will go from paying €27.20 to €12.

Travel between Gata de Gorgos and Calp will cost, starting in the summer, 42% less, taking as a reference Bono 10, as they will move through one area and not the two current areas. Similarly, people who want to move from Dénia to Benidorm or viceversa will also see how the areas they move are reduced, which will cost them a savings of 42%.

Ultimately, there will also be areas that will benefit from a drop in prices, although in the future they will pass through the same number of areas. For example, the neighbours of El Campello who want to move to Hospital Vila will continue to pay two areas, but the price of the Bonus 10 of two areas will go from 14 euros to 12 euros.
