Since a few years ago, RENFE's intentions to deprive the station of Totana of personalized attention to the public, dismantling and deteriorating a basic and indispensable service for totaneros, Izquierda Unida has not stopped proposing measures to maintain the quality And to promote this vital Public Service.
We must not forget the history of struggle of this town to maintain the Train Station in Totana.
For more than 30 years the totaneros and totaneras demonstrated their capacity of mobilization when they tried to close the Station of Totana and the town took to the street in a demonstration that made history.
Despite continuing to fight from the opposition, and a motion of the United Left at the Plenary of November 2014 was approved, in which it was requested: "to reject the measures contemplated in the new Planning of RENFE neighborhoods for the Station of Totana and Demand the maintenance of all services, enhancing them in improvements that would improve and increase the users of the train, "nothing was done by the then Government Team of the People's Party, and on February 16, 2015, we saw how one was trimmed Of our most important Public Services with the closing of the sale of tickets in the Station of Totana.
In February 2016, already in the Government Team, from Ganar Totana IU we moved a full motion urging RENFE to restore all the services eliminated, thus improving the service provided, encouraging public transport and increasing the number of users of the same.
Since there were many annoyances caused by such a cut in a service as basic as public transport and that is why we positioned ourselves completely in support of the neighbors and neighboring to some measures that hurt us.
"After this proposal and the actions carried out by the Mayor, Juan José Cánovas before the company, has been achieved the recovery of face-to-face assistance for the users of Totana station in order to inform users in general And help to get tickets to travelers who need it at the vending machines. "
The hours of this service will be, from Monday to Friday, from 6:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. at closing;
And on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays, from 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and from 5:00 p.m. until the closing of the Station.
"We are very satisfied with what we consider a great achievement aimed at maintaining the quality of basic services such as public transport and we continue to demonstrate our commitment to improve the day to day of the neighbors and continue to encourage the use of Train as a means of transport. "
In this line, a mayoral initiative was also approved in plenary. Request Renfe, the reservation of a special and large capacity wagon, for the transport of bicycles on the commuter train Murcia-Ãguilas, on weekends and holidays of character National and autonomous, in order to promote the use of public transport and as an incentive measure of sports and family tourism in the natural areas of the Municipality of Totana, as well as for the urban space with its historical and cultural attractions, And neighbors of our city can do it in the rest of the municipalities and cities that covers said line Ãguilas Murcia.
"There is still a lot to do, such as ending the continuous delays and unjustified or the adequacy of the wagons to improve the comfort of passengers in the commuter train. Win Totana IU will continue to claim, as we did in the 1984 demonstrations, until Achieve the consolidation of a decent and quality Public Service. "
