During the feast of Candelaria on August 14th and 15th, Interurban Transport of Tenerife (Titsa), a company managed by the Island Council, will implement enhanced services to ensure smooth transportation for pilgrims. The entire service within Candelaria will operate from Avenida de los Menceyes, near the old station, starting from 14:00 on August 14th until 17:00 on August 15th. As a result, stops from Calle Bélgica to Plaza de Teror will be temporarily unavailable.
As part of the arrangements, the 122 bus line will bolster its regular route connecting Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Las Caletillas, and Candelaria, with additional services according to passenger demand to facilitate movement during these busy days in the municipality. Similarly, line 120 (Santa Cruz-Güímar, Candelaria, Puertito de Güímar) will offer more departures starting from 17:10.
A special service on line 522 will also be introduced by Titsa, operating between La Laguna, Autopista, and Candelaria starting at 18:00 on August 14th. This service will remain available throughout the night and on August 15th. The last departure from Candelaria to La Laguna will be at 20:30, following the same route in both directions.
For pilgrims who intend to begin their journey on the Carretera General del Sur, various bus lines can serve as connecting points throughout August 14th. For instance, lines 014 and 228 link Santa Cruz with Cruce de La Cuesta, lines 232, 233, 934, 936, 937, and 238 connect Santa Cruz with Cruce de Taco, and lines 015, 102, 103, and 108 provide links between Santa Cruz and Hospital Universitario de Canarias.
For travelers from the southern part of the island, lines 111 and 711 establish connections between Santa Cruz de Tenerife and Costa Adeje via the TF-1 motorway, for both outbound and return trips.
