Mobico Group’s, Alsa has launched the Bus Nàutic zero-emission boat service at the Port de Barcelona, connecting Drassanes and Llevant.

This service is part of Port de Barcelona’s mission to effectively integrate with the city. It provides passengers with an attractive alternative to land transport with the aim of reducing traffic congestion on the Colom and Joan de Borbó avenues.

Bus Nàutic services commenced on 4 July and operate at least 12 hours a day, with frequencies ranging from 15 to 30 minutes.

The journey takes 10 minutes and is conducted by two catamarans – Ecocat Dos and the Ecocat Tres, which provide capacity for 56 and 84 passengers respectively.

The zero-emission boats were built by the Cantabrian shipyard and are expected to save 180 tonnes of CO2 a year.

Francisco Iglesias, ALSA's CEO, said:

This project brings together three strategic lines where the company has been working on intensively: sustainability, with a service 100% zero emission, that also helps to reduce traffic congestion; multi-modality, in this case operating a seaport transport, and finally, tourist mobility, where we would like to keep growing with new projects.
