As from this Saturday, May 13, the new route Centro-Las Américas of the “Va y Ven” transportation system will start operating, and from that date until May 21, the service will be completely free of charge.

Subsequently, it will start charging 12 pesos per trip, but significant discounts will be applied to the second and third trips for each user.

According to what was informed this Thursday, there will be a total of 33 new units, which were given in concession to Grupo Canto.

Likewise, Governor Mauricio Vila Dosal announced that the new routes will be Tecnológico-Facultad de Ingeniería-Las Américas II; Tecnológico-Siglo XXI-Plaza Harbor-Las Américas II, and Tecnológico-Vía Montejo-Las Américas.

Each of them will have free transfers and discounts that connect with the Periférico, Circuito Metropolitano and Rutas Nocturnas routes, thus achieving a public transportation network with connectivity and efficiency.

Explaining the above, it was mentioned that the first trip will have a normal cost of 12 pesos; the second trip will be 6 pesos in the first 2 hours and the third will be free.

Because of this, people who previously had to make several transfers will spend less than with the previous buses.

When giving details of the new route, the head of the Institute of Mobility and Urban Territorial Development (IMDUT), Rafael Hernández Kotasek, explained that these routes will have 112 defined stops with a coverage of 54 neighborhoods and subdivisions, reducing waiting times from 41 minutes to between 4 and 13 minutes, depending on the area.

The maximum distance between each stop is 500 meters (250 meters walkable).

In addition, an internal circuit was created to help people move within the subdivision. The service will have 4 van-type units with waiting times of 11 minutes.

Due to the adjustments to the circuit, the Iberian Route was modified to help people moving to Las Americas and Chuburna.

The service will have 9 van-type units with waiting times of 14 minutes.

Regarding the aforementioned transfers, the official explained that the second trip will be half price for the first 2 hours and the second transfer (third trip) is free.

Currently, users must walk approximately 5 blocks to board the bus and the frequency is 41 minutes on average.
