Passengers and TITSA long-distance buses in the Santa Cruz station

The Intercambiador (aka Tenerife Transport Interchange) in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, the capital of Tenerife, combines the main station of the TITSA public bus service with parking for private vehicles and access to trams. The station was opened on 17 June 2006.[1]

It is located on Avenida Tres de Mayo in the centre of Santa Cruz. The facility is a major, six-level Park-and-Ride that with an area of 66,235 square metres.[1]

There are 1,416 private vehicle spaces,[1] and the Interchange accommodates nine million passengers a year, with approximately 3,500 daily bus arrivals and departures to all points of the island. It is also the point of departure for Line 1 of the Tenerife Tram, which covers the route between Santa Cruz and San Cristóbal de La Laguna.

In December 2011, the main concourse was closed off for a safety issue. All the stands remain open.
