The Granada Metro will offer continuous service from Holy Wednesday to Good Friday as part of the special Holy Week operation. This uninterrupted service will be available from the morning of Holy Wednesday until two in the morning from Good Friday to Holy Saturday, totaling 68 hours of uninterrupted operation.

The aim of this initiative is to promote the use of public transport during religious festivities and facilitate mass movements associated with processions.

During peak hours, the possibility of incorporating double trains to meet user demand is being considered. It is important to note that the Metro will be the only means of public transport that will not alter its route due to the passage of processions.

Additionally, the commercial metro service will extend until 2:00 in the morning on the other days of Holy Week, including Palm Sunday, Holy Monday, Holy Tuesday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday. Train intervals will vary between eight and fifteen minutes, depending on the time of day.

This year marks one year after the Granada Metro recorded its highest number of passengers during Holy Week since its inauguration. In 2023, it transported 316,124 users between Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday, representing a 30% increase compared to the previous year.
