ŠKODA is also lending its expertise and experience to creating a free modern-day stagecoach in the Tabernas Desert. This project is a Spanish project in collaboration with ŠKODA headquarters. As Albert García, Marketing Manager at ŠKODA Spain explains, “one of the objectives of ŠKODA is to help towns affected by depopulation, because they are difficult to access or have transport problems.”
For residents of these towns, transportation is just as important today as it was in the Wild West. Residents need transportation to get supplies, to commute to work, and to stay connected with their families and other communities. ŠKODA has experience solving these kinds of problems. In 2015, ŠKODA donated a vehicle to the town of Valdelinares, the highest town in Spain to help connect residents with the outside world.
