In the next days, there will be a bidding among specialized companies for the studies of the connectivity project through the injection of MXN $36.5 million, to analyze the feasibility and viability of the works of land interconnectivity solutions between the air terminals of Santa Lucía, AICM and the Toluca International Airport.
The Mexibus will transport national and international passengers that have to transfer between the new International Santa Lucía Airport (AISL) and the Mexico City International Airport (AICM).
Those who have to move between these two air terminals will make a 45.6-kilometers journey using this mode of transportation.
The journey from Indios Verdes to the Santa Lucía Airport will be of 41.6-kilometers journey in Mexibus.
The route that those who leave or come back to Santa Lucía to the International Air Terminal of Toluca (AIT) will be 98.6 kilometers long – excluding the journey from the subway station “Observatorio” to “Indios Verdes”-: 57 kilometers correspond to the route of the Interurban Train Mexico-Toluca, and the other 41.6 kilometers correspond to the route of the Mexibus from “Indios Verdes.”
According to the project of Connectivity Through the Integration of the Mass Transportation Systems for the Metropolitan Airport System of the Valley of Mexico, of which EL UNIVERSAL has a copy, the communication routes between the air terminals of Toluca, AICM and Santa Lucía will take place through a mass transportation system like Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) or a line of buses that transit in a confined lane.
These kind of units, 12 meters long on average, are able to transport up to 100 passengers.
For this, the government, through the General Directorate of Railway and Multimodal Transport (DGTFM) of the Ministry of Communications and Transport (SCT) proposes three extensions of the existing Mexibus systems: Ojo de Agua -AISL, AICM-Mexipuerto, and Tecámac-AISL.
Likewise, it contemplates the construction of two more lines: Mexibus 1, which would go from Ciudad Azteca to Ojo de Agua, and Mexibus 4, that would go from Indios Verdes to Tecamac.
The passengers coming from or to Toluca that want to use the air terminals of Santa Lucía, the International Toluca Airport, and the AICM will be able to use the Interurban Train Mexico-Toluca, and a connection of this service that will be built for their easy access of about 8.7 kilometers.
The SCT highlights in the document that was submitted for consideration by the Investment Unit of the Mexican Ministry of Finance (SHCP), “that currently there are no efficient systems of public transportation between the two destinations and, above all, by including the airport of Toluca in the scheme of the Metropolitan Airport System, synergies from the three airports are required for the integration of public transportation systems.”
