Route with high capacity – that's what the Spaniards call their new BRT route in Granada. Based on 15 Mercedes-Benz CapaCity model large-capacity buses Granada has created a new high-performance transport system for the city centre traffic. On 29 June 2014 the Mayor of Granada, José Torres Hurtado, the city councillor for transport, María Telesfora Ruíz Rodríguez, and the operator of the new BRT route represented by Francisco Gámez, Managing Director of the transport operator Transportes Rober S.A., celebrated the grand opening of the new route.
Granada's local public transport is completely based on a close-knit bus route network which links the suburbs with the city centre. Up until now most of the lines were routed along the "Gran Vía de Colón" through the city centre. This concentration of bus routes in the city centre area with lots of junctions controlled by traffic lights slowed down bus transport and led to conflicts with the pedestrian and cycle traffic. In order to improve the traffic situation in the centre, Granada's town planners looked for a new transport concept which could reduce the number of buses in the city centre and increase both capacity and punctuality at the same time.
