Promotion of public transportation in Havana › Cuba › Granma

Leandro Méndez Peña, Director of Transportation for Havana, explained at a meeting of the territorial government that it will integrate, to the urban buses that are now operating, 286 additional modes of school buses and from various institutions and organizations, as part of a strategy to mitigate the situation in this region.

Reinaldo García Zapata, the governor of the capital, called for the pursuit of the greatest possible regulation and efficiency of these vehicles, to provide better benefits for passengers, reported Tribuna de la Habana.

The newspaper pointed out that the electric tricycle tracks will be expanded in the municipality of Boyeros, and that a similar system is being studied in Guanabacoa.

Marta Oramas Rivero, First Deputy Minister of Transport, noted that Havana has the lowest technical readiness coefficient in the past 10 years.

Until last month, the regional carrier in Havana, the main operator, had only 442 vehicles in operation, moving more than 580,000 people per day, a number far from the 780 buses scheduled three years ago, with 20% in reserve, according to ACN.

To reduce the impact of the complex scenario, nearly 60 regulatory, monitoring and communication measures have been put in place to maintain the vitality of transportation in the capital, especially during peak hours.
