The Rodalies, Regional and Media Distancia train service in Catalonia, completely paralyzed from 5:00 a.m., has been able to reactivate from 8:00 a.m., as confirmed by Adif. The historic stoppage, which has harmed the hundreds of thousands of daily users of the service, was due to a breakdown in the telecommunications system of the Renfe control center at the França Station.
Deposit and a minimum of trips: this is how the free subscriptions work in Cercanías and medium distance from September
During those three hours, only High-Speed trains (AVE) have circulated throughout Catalonia while Adif technicians worked to resolve the fault, as reported by the company.
From the company they have recommended using other means of transport while the breakdown has lasted. And once solved they have warned that circulation will be resumed with “irregularities”.
