With more than 100 years of experience and today part of National Express Group, ALSA operates since 2012 the urban transport of Bilbao, Bilbobus, with a fleet of 145 buses, and several services in the metropolitan area of Bilbao, integrated in Bizkaibus, with 140 vehicles.
ALSA is aware of the fact that the problems related to mobility are becoming increasingly important, affecting the life quality of millions of people and having an increasingly leading role in the public agenda. In Euskadi, public administrations are also aware of this problem, and they showed an exemplary commitment at national and international level to establish effective policies supporting public transport.
There is consensus on the fact that a new sustainable mobility model requires policies that promote the use of public transport against private transport. For that purpose it is key that administrations invest more in transport infrastructures as stations, transport modal interchanges, park&ride areas and bus lanes, all of them with great social profitability.
As a full-range supplier of mobility, in ALSA we have been committed for many years now to launching and rolling out new models of sustainable mobility, with theintroduction of fleet with clean. green technologies and the development of new last mile intermodal products ,added to a proper financing of the system that ensures the provision of quality and innovative services by the operators while we keep progressing towards the digitalization of all our operations.
