Tenmás cards for ‘a new way of life’
Cabildo President Carlos Alonso, explaining the reason for changing the popular Bono, said: “This is the first step towards a new payment system, which is intended to simplify the current system. It will become a new way of life.
“It has been designed to work like a citizen card for payment, or access to different services managed by the Cabildo, such as museums, sports centres, libraries, etc.”
The name Tenmás (Tenmore), lists the advantages and better access conditions for travellers, enabling them to get all over the island with a single card, offering faster access to the bus or tram, and the facility to recharge the card online, as well as at the usual sale points.
It can be registered in the owner’s name, which will give individuals access to discounts, allow them to consult and recharge the balance, or recover it in case the card is lost.
Volunteers will test the new system between May and September to assess and correct any issues before next year’s launch.
The Tenmás version will cost the same as the Bono bus cards: 15 and 25 euros, plus the monthly recharge.
