Tenerife Tram / Tranvía de Tenerife

Tenerife Tram / Tranvía de Tenerife

The Tranvía or Metro de Tenerife is operated by Metropolitano de Tenerife. Currently, it is the only railway in the Canary Islands.

Can I Take the Tram to or from Tenerife South Airport?

No, there is no tram connection to Tenerife South Airport. The Tenerife Metro network only has two lines and covers a relatively small area in the northeast of the island. For information about airport buses, please see the link at the bottom of this page.

The Tenerife tram serves the metropolitan area of Santa Cruz de Tenerife and San Cristóbal de La Laguna, where it offers a good and sustainable alternative to the local buses. The two lines have two interconnected stops, University Hospital and El Cardonal, which allow passengers to transfer from one line to the other (please also see the map below).

Tenerife tram line 1

Line 1 connects the capital, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, with San Cristóbal de La Laguna which, after Santa Cruz, is the second biggest city and former capital of the island.  This line was the first to become operational; the service started in June 2007. Line 1 has 21 stops along a route of 12.5 kilometres (7.8 miles). The journey time from the first stop to the last is about 40 minutes.

Tenerife tram line 2

Line 2 opened in May 2009 and runs between La Cuesta and Tíncer. This line is shorter: it covers a distance of  3.6 kilometres (2.2 miles) and only has 6 stops.
