For the tourists that stay in the hotels in Caniço they will now have a mini-bus service for scenic tours of the coast and mountain areas of Madeira. It is the result of an investment by Caniculo Automobile Company (EACL) in the acquisition of two vehicles, in an approximate investment of 300 thousand euros, which was presented this morning in Caniço de Baixo.
The company’s manager, Carlos Miguel Lobo, explained that the bus company was already providing occasional services for tourists but that it needed a regular operation, more organized and structured and ensured with adapted vehicles, all the more justified by the growth of the hotel industry in Caniço de Baixo . “It will be an operation for every day, with fixed schedule, since the buses leave with any number of passengers. This regular operation, articulated with the public service we already do, creates greater mobility, especially to tourism, “the official said. The two cars acquired are prototypes, inspired by panoramic trains that already exist in some European tourist areas, since the passengers appreciate all the surrounding landscape through windows, that are retractable.
This is great for the Caniço de Baixo area, the busiest hotel zone outside of Funchal. I think they will work like a hop on hop off service and waiting for a program of routes they will take.
