The summer holidays were of poor demand for the Mérida – Progreso shuttle service, according to public transportation dispatchers and employees, the number of passengers decreased by 40% compared to previous years.
They added that this last weekend was “dead”, and almost no one traveled to the port from this terminal.
Sunday August 28, was officially the last day of the summer holiday season and despite the nice weather and contrary to predictions, very few people used the Autoprogreso transportation service.
Marco Antonio Sanchez Canul, Autoprogreso dispatcher stated that this holiday season was extremely low. So much that only 10 extra shuttles were required, when up to 30 used to be needed in previous years.
“This was a very low summer season, very few people traveled to Progreso for the holidays, we did not see the long lines here at the terminal as in previous years, this could be due to the nation’s current economic situation and the high cost of the “back to school” expenses”, Sanchez Canul said.
Abraham Bote Tun from Merida declared: “This time of the year, parents have to buy books, school supplies, uniforms and even computers for their children, and if families travel to the Progreso, they do it only once a month, and not every weekend like they used to.”
Autoprogreso dispatcher Canul Sanchez noted that this last weekend of the summer holiday season there was practically no demand for transportation.
He added that Saturday was not that bad, but on Sunday business was bad for the Autoprogreso transportation service.
“There are only a few users, but most of them are from Progreso, and they came to Merida to buy school supplies or other things and then they head back home, but almost nobody went to spedn the day at the beach Sunday,” he said.
