Obert el termini per a l'obtenció de 24 llicències de taxi estacional per a les temporades 2022/2023

El Consell de Formentera, a través de l'àrea de Mobilitat, informa que des d'avui divendres 21 de gener i fins al proper dilluns 31 de gener (tots dos inclosos) estarà obert el termini per a presentar sol·licituds per a l'obtenció de llicències de taxi estacional a Formentera per als anys 2022 i 2023. En total, sortiran 24 places de taxis estacionals, 12 faran feina de l'1 de juny al 15 de setembre, i les altres 12 del 15 de juny al 30 de setembre.

Aquesta iniciativa es recull al Pla d'Actuació en Matèria de Transport Públic de Viatgers en Vehicle Turisme per als anys 2022 i 2023 a l'illa de Formentera, que s'ha aprovat amb consens amb l'associació del taxi. Per als estius del 2022 i 2023 donaran servei 49 taxis (25 llicències ordinàries i 24 d'estacionals). El conseller de Mobilitat, Rafael González ha assenyalat que d'aquesta manera s'incrementarà el servei "en un 29 % de taxis més respecte a l'estiu de 2021" (quan varen haver 38 taxis, 25 llicències ordinàries i 13 estacionals).

"Amb aquest pla dotam l'illa de Formentera d'una millor oferta de transport públic amb taxi, tenint en compte els increments de la demanda que hi ha hagut els últims anys en temporada estival", segons ha explicat Rafael González. Cal destacar que la demanda d'aquest sector s'ha incrementat en un 8 % al 2021 respecte al 2019.
Aquest pla respon als objectius fixats en el Pla de Mobilitat Sostenible del Consell de Formentera i al del projecte formentera.eco en què a més de regular l'entrada i circulació de vehicles s'estableix la necessitat de millorar el servei de transport públic de l'illa.

Presentació d'ofertes

S'hi poden presentar a aquesta oferta els titulars de llicència permanent i assalariats del sector o antics titulars de llicències temporals. En concret s'han reservat 19 places per als titulars de llicències ordinàries de taxi de Formentera i 5 per als assalariats o antics titulars de llicències. Les llicències tindran caràcter personal.

Les bases per presentar-se s'han publicat ahir al Butlletí Oficial de les Illes Balears, i també al web del Consell de Formentera. L'adjudicació es farà mitjançant concurs públic. Es poden consultar les bases aquí.

Formentera joins the Melib network of e-vehicle charge points

foto melib AOn Wednesday, Ana Juan, President of the Consell de Formentera, and Pep Malagrava, the Balearic Director General of Energy and Climate Change, signed a collaboration agreement to link 24 municipally-owned charging points to the Balearic Network for Electric Mobility (Xarxa de Mobilitat Elèctrica de les Illes Balearics, Melib) and facilitate its use to drivers of e-vehicles on the island.

The signing was also attended by Ferran Rosa, Managing Director of the Balearic Energy Institute (Institut Balear de l'Energia, IBE), and Rafael González, Councillor of Mobility of the Consell de Formentera.

President Juan stressed that "Formentera's membership in the Melib network will help to promote the new model of mobility that the island needs and our administration is working toward". "Government agencies must facilitate and accelerate this change and the Melib network is one more step", she said.

For his part, Councillor González pointed that e-vehicle mobility is supported by recharge points at the island's urban centres and public car parks with more than 30 parking spaces and that "for years the Consell has been committed to promoting more sustainable transport for Formentera; this is the island Formentera is striving to become".

The IBE will provide the island's government with technical guides, training and connection cards so its recharge stations can be configured and connected to the Melib network. The IBE will use an interface platform to coordinate the Melib network and manage recharging on it.

As manager of the recharge points, the Consell de Formentera, in turn, will follow the IBE's indications and implement a system of maintenance so users on the network can benefit from the service. As a member of the network, the Consell de Formentera will affix Melib and formentera.eco decals and stickers at its recharge stations. 

Rollout

This arrangement will remain in force for four years from the date of signature, whereupon it may be extended for another four years.  Project engineers expect the system to be implemented by next season. Users can enter "Melib" in the search bar of the App Store or Play Store to download an associated app. Users must request an associated card from the Formentera Office of Mobility to gain free access to local recharge points. Cardholders may also use Melib recharge points across the region.

Formentera subsidises purchases of new standard and electric bicycles

The Formentera Office of Mobility is pleased to announce that requests for assistance to defray the expense of standard and electric bicycles (€100 and €300 respectively) will be accepted from tomorrow. Between 3 December 2021 and 3 January 2022, Formentera residents over 18 can submit applications to the Citizen Information Office (Oficina d'Atenció al Ciutadà, OAC) or the Virtual Citizen Information Office (OVAC).

Included in Formentera's Sustainable Mobility Plan, the initiative aims "to encourage islanders who typically travel exclusively by car to buy a bicycle and start completing a portion of their journeys on two wheels", explained Rafael González, Councillor of Mobility. "We hope little steps like these will enable us to make Formentera a more sustainable island and one with a cleaner brand of mobility", said the councillor, "where we can reduce CO2 emissions and noise pollution while promoting healthier lifestyles".

Terms and conditions

The Consell de Formentera has unlocked an initial tranche of €15,000 to subsidise bicycle purchases. Assistance will be awarded on a competitive basis, with the only factor being order of submission.

The offer applies to new manual and electric city, hiking and mountain bikes purchased in Formentera establishments. The cost must remain under €1,000 for conventional bikes and under €3,000 for e-bikes, VAT excluded.

Interested parties must submit the associated forms and an estimate specifying the brand, model and the technical terms available on the Consell de Formentera website.

Walking and cycling trips to Es Cap lighthouse up 62% from busiest day of 2019 to 2021

foto 2021 mobilitatAs part of European Mobility Week, the Formentera Office of Mobility has taken advantage of World Car-Free Day today, 22 September, to release data on the number of visitors who visisted Es Cap on foot or by bicycle during the busiest day of August this year.

On 14 August, 1,090 people and 54 cyclists accessed Es Cap, making it, at 1,144 visits, the busiest day in 2021. In 2019, the busiest day came on the 10th day of the same month, when 676 walkers and 31 cyclists accessed the lighthouse, for a total of 707 visits in one day. Comparing the data over the previous two years, pedestrian and bicycle visits are up 62%. In particular, foot traffic increased by 61% and bicycle traffic by 74%.

Councillor of Mobility Rafael González highlighted the fact that the regulation of motor vehicle access to Es Cap, which began in 2017, “made it possible to have more visitors and still avoid problems of saturation, crowding or violence in the natural area”. González said the data “speak to the success of measures to promote sustainable mobility and give a sense of the path to follow in the future".

Access constraints in force from 1 June to 15 October are designed to preserve the unspoilt stretch of land located on the public estate of Sa Tanca d'Allà Dins. For the last five years, motor vehicle access has been restricted by a barrier located at km 6.5 of the Es Cap de Barbaria road. The measure is intended to guarantee a positive experience, and easy access, for residents and visitors on their way to the Es Cap lighthouse or the Es Garroveret watchtower.

cartell 2021 busThe Formentera Office of Mobility reminds islanders that since 4 June, public buses are free for riders under 18, those with disabilities and dependents and their companions.

Mobility chief Rafael González seized the opportunity of European Mobility Week to take stock of the measure in its first three months. All told, 12,723 people benefitted from free rides between 4 June and 12 September: 2,056 in June, 4,383 in July, 4,815 in August and 1,469 in the first twelve days of September.

“The figures show that islanders respond well to measures promoting sustainable mobility”, explained Councillor González. The free rides programme has roots in a formentera.eco proposal from 2021, which González described as “a project to promote a change in mobility among residents and tourists”.
