Something more than ten in the morning, Plaza de los Remedios de Buenavista de Norte. People pile up between the Pilon bar and the Kiosk bar, while some of them hurry their cut and others buy at the flea market, suddenly they all look towards a small Titsa bus of 26 seats, which reaches the square with almost full capacity, after leaving the bus station of the town five minutes earlier.
Miguel Becerra, Ofelia Manjón and Coromoto Yanes, members of the Cabildo, while the mayor, Eva Garcia, preferred to remain on land, “to give symptom of normality”.
The little girl is on her way, almost full of journalists and a couple of foreign tourists, to her first official trip to the tip of Teno, with a stop earlier, in Triana, to pick up four young cane fishermen. The passage completed, the 369 continued on its way to the point where the Island ends, the point where the north and the south meet. This TITSA line was inaugurated at 369, which every weekends and holidays will transfer for two euros (round trip) to visitors who want to enjoy one of the most impressive natural sites of Tenerife.
The rest of the days, the entrance of vehicles will not be restricted, nor are the professional fishermen on the weekends, the workers of Luz Teno or those responsible for Ports that attend the lighthouse, as well as cyclists or vehicles for the disabled. All others will have to do it in a bus, which for now will work from 10 in the morning until five in the afternoon, departing every hour on time, although the schedule is subject to changes as well as the size of the bus, when understood That the last ones of return will have to have greater capacity to want to come almost everybody in those schedules.

The idea of the Cabildo, which is still in full evaluation, has divided Buenavista, because many do not understand that they are denied entry with their vehicles or pay for the bus, while others see the idea with good eyes. A way to protect a natural landscape and the usual bottlenecks of vehicles at the tip of Teno, which must be remembered for six months closed to traffic after the road and after a large investment in meshes that have left in oblivion the effects of the stones, now that the asphalt has been renewed for the satisfaction of those who go by bus, bicycle or in their vehicles, which can continue to do so any day of the week, except on weekends and holidays, where the alternative has number: 369.
