The former Merida Bus Station (CAME) operated by Autobuses de Oriente (ADO) will be turned into a shopping center.
On November 12th, governor Mauricio Vila Dosal, in the presence of the mayor of Mérida, Renán Barrera Concha, and ADO executives, inaugurated the Mérida Bus Terminal (TAME), located on the corner of 69th and 70th streets, downtown Merida.
Vila Dosal announced that the old facility will be transformed into a shopping center.
He said that paperwork is already being done on the permits for the CAME former BusTerminal to become a commercial center soon, so he hopes that the project managers will reach a good agreement with both the City Council of Mérida and the INAH.
He stressed that, with the changes that have been made in the Historic Center during the last nine years, Meridans and tourists will be able to appreciate and enjoy the downtown area in a better way.
He stated that in the tourism issue, Yucatan is doing very well, since there is an increase in the arrival of tourists by air, land and sea (as more and bigger cruise ships are arriving to Progreso), as well as an increase in hotel occupancy statewide.
Vila Dosal declared that his administration is getting ready to host the Tianguis Turístico 2020, an event that will boost the tourism activity in the Yucatecan capital, and the rest of the state.
