After leading the launching of 142 natural gas buses leased by the State, to start the restructuring of public transport in Nuevo León, Governor Samuel Alejandro García Sepúlveda pointed out that this is the mobility that the entity should always have. The new buses correspond to the package of 400 vehicles leased to the firm LDR Solutions.
The 12-meter FOTON AUV buses have capacity for 100 passengers. They feature Cummins engine and Allison transmission.
“They are the best in the world, and can accommodate up to 100 citizens. They are safe buses connected to the C5, to Sintram. In addition, they are low-level, comfortable, and inclusive for the elderly and people with disabilities. They also feature air conditioning for the summer and WiFi,” García expressed.
Of the 142 units, 30 are already operating in the direct University circuit, which supports the shuttle service of students from the Autonomous University of Nuevo León, in the Monterrey metropolitan area.
García Sepúlveda commented that the new buses will be sent to those areas where the service is most urgent. “In February, in addition to these 142, and of the 300 that will also arrive next month, we will recover many of the vehicles that are serving Line 2 today. And with those 400 buses the formal restructuring begins, multimodal card payment begins and Nuevo León begins to see and have the mobility that we always require,” he added.
The governor also announced that public transportation in Nuevo León will have 1,600 new buses this year to continue the restructuring.
