The 2.5km four-station extension is expected to increase ridership on the network by around 3000 passengers per day and is being implemented as part of the Sustainable Integrated Urban Development (DUSI) project for the southwest of the Santa Cruz metropolitan area.

Line 1 from Santa Cruz to La Laguna was inaugurated in June 2007 and Line 2 from La Cuesta to Tíncer began operating two years later, taking the total length of the network to 15.1km.
