The Lleida Area ATM Board of Directors met yesterday in its first session of the year, taking stock of the latest measures implemented and their effects on demand.
The Lleida Area documented nearly 2.4 million passengers on public transport services during the first quarter of 2011, representing an increase of 2.43% over the same period in 2010.
The Board also designated, in accordance with that stipulated in article 9 of the current Statutes of the Consortium, the new chair and spokesperson for the Executive Committee, who must represent the administration of the Generalitat. The person nominated to fill the post of chairperson was Maria Dolors Tella, director of Regional Services in Lleida for the Ministry of Country Works and Sustainability, and Miguel Ángel Dombriz, the head of the Mobility area of the Ministry of Country Works and Sustainability, was designated the spokesperson of the Executive Committee on behalf of the Generalitat of Catalonia.
Furthermore, the Lleida Area ATM studied its upcoming incorporation in social networks as new bidirectional channels of communication that will allow the voices of users of public transport to be heard while strengthening user loyalty. Activities in social networks will also publicise the work that the ATM does in the region and promote the use of public transport as well as improve its perception as a high-quality, technologically advanced and innovative service.
