Actions relative to the theme:
El día 22 de septiembre el precio del billete de autobús será reducido, 0,20€ para todos los usuarios (Día Europeo Sin Coche).

-Con el fin de incentivar el uso del autobús entre los jóvenes, y para dar una mayor repercusión a la campaña que se está haciendo en los colegios, se plantea dejar el billete de autobús gratuíto del lunes 19 a viernes 23, ambos incluídos, para los jóvenes menores de 17 años.

-También con el fin de incentivar el uso del autobús, pero en este caso entre los trabajadores que acuden a la zona centro, se va editar un folleto que se llama "Al trabajo en bus con Avilabús" que durante esa semana será repartido en los principales centros de trabajo existentes en la zona centro.
