Authorities say that by 2023, the fleet of 1,200 buses that circulate around the city will be totally renewed or replaced…
MERIDA – The head of the Transportation Directorate, Humberto Hevia Jiménez, informed that work has been carried out to succeed in the project to make the Merida’s center free of buses, to allow free access to motorists and pedestrians.
The agency director said that this measure will be implemented to prevent the center being “a huge parking lot” and to improve people’s transit at the bus stops and the vehicle circulation in the main streets of the city.
The official stated: “We are working on it, we are doing it step by step because we have experienced before that when it has been done with no structure and full of political and media pressures, it has collapsed. This has to be done within an structural order”.
When questioned about whether it will be in this administration that it is implemented, he only replied that “it is within a planning and a methodology, so they will continue to work on it”.
He rejected the increase in tariffs that has been demanded by the bus owners, after the increases in the price of fuels; besides that, some routes do not have great demand, but the service must be provided.
In the same way, he predicted that in the next six years the 1,200 buses that circulate daily throughout the city will be renewed or replaced, however currently only the 160 that belong to the Situr have been renewed.
