The Railway Board denounced for the third time the railway "ostracism" Renfe condemned Almeria for despite an increase in tickets to and fro the province due to the arrival of summer season and the removal of restrictions imposed by the health crisis.
Jose Carlos Tejada was seen standing in front of the station. He said that it was "totally unfortunate" that Almeria is still being forgotten, without Renfe offering any solutions.
The table states that it is unacceptable that the railway transport company, with a forecast of 90% hotel occupancy in Almeria during the summer, "is so narrow and doesn't realize that this province requires mobility solutions for citizens, both Almeria residents as well as those who are from abroad>>."
He has been disfigured.
According to Tejada, there is currently only one train from Almeria to Madrid. It leaves at the beginning of the morning and arrives at the passenger blocks by the end.
The protest platform does not realize that the provincial public administrations -City Hall and Provincial Council - do not carry out any type of protest actions so that Almeria doesn't have a mobility deficit.
Almeria's coordinator of the table has disclosed that they had been in touch six times by phone and six more by email over the past year with officials from Renfe and Government of Spain "so that there is the recovery of circulations" but "it has not been of any use".
Pepe Haro, president of Renfe in Almeria, said that services would be restored in the first half 2022 as per the company's promises. He stated that "Unfortunately, we haven't recovered them and there was a breach."
He said, "Mobility capability is very, very low because we are located in a large tourist city and we believe they are throwing out citizens as well as all travelers in this province without solutions."
Haro also stated that Renfe has invited them to visit Almeria to "check reliably and firsthand" what is going on in the province.
The Railway Board demanded that they "recover both the Granada-Madrid trains" on Friday. They don't rule out any new mobilizations "in a short term" if they don't receive a response.
