THE controversial new bus services between the airport and tourist sites have begun.
The A11 to Paguera via Magaluf and the A32 to Alcudia, Playa de Muro and Can Picafort are the first of many that are likely to receive a backlash from taxi drivers who see their business being undercut.
The routes take as much time as the taxis but are much cheaper.
The regional transport ministry has stood by the move, saying it provides a quality public transport service to tourists who plan their trips online.
Residents will also be able to enjoy more direct journeys.
The A42 to Cala Millor and Cala Bona will begin on June 1, with the A51 to Cala d’Orvia Arenal beginning on June 15.
