Compared to the other islands in the Canary Islands, Tenerife boasts a well-developed transport network, as it offers a wide range of traveling methods along the island. Here’s the full list of them.
Tenerife’s main bus operator is Titsa- Transportes Interurbanos de Tenerife SA. The bus network is so dense that it covers practically all of Tenerife’s territory, making it easier and quicker for travelers to explore the island.
In case you are interested in the connections between the airport and the heart of the island, note that the lines destined for this route are 102, 107, 108, 340, while to make a connection between the airport and Reina Sofia, you will have to choose 111, 340 and 343. Of course, Tenerife offers tourists and other bus operators such as Orobus, Salazar Bus, and Transtour.
The bus network is very well developed, making Tenerife one of the best-equipped islands in Europe. Transportation lines reaching over 150 are enough to meet the needs of tourists and give them the opportunity to travel to the desired destination.
Tenerife also boasts a wide range of taxi operators offering services for each tourist (disabled or not). Note that taxis in Tenerife have a white color. Among the advantages and disadvantages of this type of transport, we find speed, comfort, and costly. Yes, the taxi trip along Tenerife isn’t exactly a cheap solution.
You will encounter taxi operators throughout the island, especially in the most populated areas, such as the airport, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, famous resort and beach destinations. Among taxi operators, we find Taxi Tenerife Airport, Asociación Tele Taxi Isla de Tenerife, La Laguna taxi services, Guimar taxi services, Puerto de la Cruz taxi services, La Orotava taxi services and Los Realejos taxi services.
The main operator of tramway services is dubbed Metropolitano de Tenerife (MTSA). This type of transport tries to correlate its utility with environmental protection. Vehicles are modernly equipped for all types of passengers. Even though it’s a cheap, comfortable and easy to use travel option, unfortunately, the tram network is poorly developed. Tenerife hosts only one tram line connecting Santa Cruz and La Laguna. However, over a distance of about an hour, the tram makes more than 20 stops along the Metropolitan Area.
This transport network is well- developed, Tenerife having a lot of car rental providers. Prices vary depending on the car model and the rental period. For example, renting a Ford Ka for one day will cost you around 20 euros. Renting a car is the best option to enjoy your holiday on your own by creating the desired itinerary.
Being surrounded by water, it would be inconvenient not to talk about traveling via boats along Tenerife Island. Tenerife has an average network developed by sea line companies. In particular, they are dedicated to transporting tourists between the islands and between Tenerife to Europe. So, this way is virtually inaccessible to move around or along the island, but it’s more of a way to get to Tenerife. Among the sea line operators, we find Trasmediterranea, Naviera Armas, and Fred Olsen.
Tenerife has a well-developed transport network. My recommendation is to choose your way of travel based on the budget, urgent activities, distance, and your own preferences, as you have at least five options.
