World Association of the Major Metropolises
The Metrobús System emerged from the need to offer new alternatives to improve the transport infrastructure in Mexico City, lessening the environmental impact caused by conventional means of transport.
Metrobús is a BRT (Bus Rapid Transit) transport system. Since its outset, it has addressed accessibility issues in an endeavour to provide an appropriate service and to enhance the travel experience of users with specific needs. The system boasts large-capacity buses equipped with high technology that operate in reserved lanes to ensure speed and safety.
The service is efficient and includes accessible infrastructure, frequent services and automated payment. The project’s overall goal is to increase the supply of public transport services in Mexico City through a modern bus network, which allows the mass transit of users in optimum conditions in accordance with their needs, and to help reduce the use of cars as the main means of transport. In addition, it is intended to contribute to improved air quality in the Metropolitan Area of the Valley of Mexico through actions that also mitigate the effects of greenhouse gases on global climate change. It should be noted that it has the first fleet of hybrid buses in Latin America.
