He also added that these measures are going to be extended to other parts of the Community, such as in the area of Alicante “where the integration and simplification of rates will also be given a boost. “The same will be done in Castellón and the integration of other municipalities that are not in the metropolitan area but that many of their neighbors move to Valencia on a daily basis is being studied,” he added.
