The service that integrates the Salentoinbus 111 line, is useful for those who are interested in moving between the urban area and the marinas, both residents and tourists.
The corrierina del mare (literally the seaside bus) is a service, managed by Salento Open Tour, that links the old town, the marinas of Santa Maria al Bagno and Santa Caterina and Portoselvaggio park and will be active until 29th August..
Which are its peculiarities? First of all, it allows quick and comfortable transfers from urban areas to coastal ones, in the interest of those who do not own a private means of transport (for example, a lot of tourists) or those who simply want to avoid the stress due to the car park search or to the traffic flows of the coast. An easy way to move from the beauties of the historic center to those of the sea and nature.
Secondly, it is a service totally free of charge.
In the third place, it is a environmentally friendly choice because the means of transport used by the manager are an ecologic minibus that runs on methane gas with 24 seats and an electric uncovered minibus with 14 seats, both therefore have almost zero environmental impact. Moreover, the first of the two vehicles also has an innovative ultraviolet ray air sanitazing system, in a continuous cycle (even during the journey), that is a particularly efficient device in reducing the risk of contagion from Covid19. On both vehicles, as per legislation, full compliance with regulations related to COVID-19 (masks, spacing, hand sanitation, etc.).
