Renfe and Unipublic will travel together for the seventh consecutive year. The railway company will be the official transport provider for La Vuelta 22 that will commence on the 19th of August in the city of Utrecht (Netherlands).

In this way, Renfe renews its historic commitment to sports in general and to La Vuelta in particular – a race it shares certain values with, such as sustainability and social responsibility. Through the agreement, the railway company provides the organisation with a transport service that is comfortable, reliable and offers the maximum sanitary assurances in its High-Speed and Long Distance trains, both national and international.
SANITARY GUARANTEES AND SUSTAINABLE TRANSPORT
With regards to Covid-19, Renfe continues to carry out its cleaning and disinfecting procedures for all its trains, which have been recognised with AENOR and SGS certificates for the transport of passengers.
