The Abanto-Zierbena City Council extends the deadline to request subsidies for the Auzotaxi program, aimed at improving mobility in rural areas

El Abanto-Zierbena Town Hall has announced the extension of the deadline to apply for grants to the program autotaxi Until december 31. This program has a budget of 25.000 euros and is intended to make life easier for people who live in rural areas far from the urban center and without access to public transport.

Objectives of the Auzotaxi program

The main objective of the grants of this program is to make life easier for people living in rural areas of the municipality that do not have access to public transport and are far from the urban nucleus. Through the Auzotaxi program, it is intended to make an accessible transport service available to these people. Likewise, the subsidies also seek to boost the taxi sector and promote the sustainable mobility.

Requirements to access the subsidies

Among the requirements to access the subsidies, are to be young people between 18 and 30 years or older than 65 years, not having their own vehicle and being registered in one of the rural areas of the municipality. These conditions make it possible to guarantee that the Auzotaxi program is aimed at those who need it most and those who have difficulties accessing other means of transport.

Impact on the community and the environment

The Auzotaxi program not only aims to improve the quality of life of residents in rural areas, but also contributes to the care of the environment by promoting sustainable mobility. By offering a shared and accessible transportation service, the need to use private vehicles is reduced, which reduces polluting gas emissions and traffic congestion.

How to apply for the grant?

People interested in applying for subsidies from the Auzotaxi program can do so through the website of the Abanto-Zierbena City Council or by going to their facilities in person. It is important to remember that the deadline for submitting applications has been extended until December 31.

The Auzotaxi program is an example of how public administrations can implement measures to improve the quality of life of its citizens and at the same time promote sustainable mobility and care for the environment. Hopefully initiatives like this will continue to expand and adapt to the needs of communities in the future.
