“Safe, comfortable and efficient mobility for CDMX”: Claudia Sheinbaum

As part of the actions to guarantee the right to a safe, comfortable, efficient and non-polluting mobility for the benefit of the inhabitants of Mexico City, during the three years of the present administration the capital government has implemented the Strategic Mobility Plan which is based on three axes: integrate, improve, protect, as well as various emerging actions and the modernization of the Collective Transportation System (SCT).

For the integration of the toll system of the Public Transport Organizations of CDMX, a thousand validation teams were acquired to accept the Integrated Mobility Card in the buses of the Passenger Transport Network (RTP) and 200 teams in trolleybuses, which represents 95 percent of the capital government’s bus fleet that are in circulation. In the coming months, the use of the Integrated Mobility Card will be extended to the concessioned public transport network.

Similarly, 193 new trolleybuses have been purchased for the Electric Transportation Service (STE), 50 of them articulated, as well as 297 RTP buses and 173 Metrobús buses. The extensions of Lines 3, 4 and 5 of Metrobús were carried out; and the expansion of the “La Joya”, “El Caminero” and “Colonia Del Valle” stations of the Insurgentes Corridor of Metrobús Line 1.
