The president of the Union of Pulmoneros in the port, said that due to the low influx of people, some units were stopped, once they ran out of gas, and others chose to put them in maintenance, while those who are still circulating on the streets, they do it with very few people.
“We have not stopped providing the service, although we are working right now, I believe, at 20 percent, from 15 to 20 percent in terms of demand. We are working, with very, very little demand, in fact, we are struggling even to get the same expenses for gasoline and maintenance of the unit. ”
He said that public transport service providers never see a bleak picture, so everyone, including those of cargo trucks, aurigas, and urban trasport vehicles, sent a letter to the same Government of the State of Sinaloa, in order to support them in the operation of the units since all activities stopped.
“Due to the lack of income that we are having, we are going to ask for financial support, especially to subsist, so that we can at least have an income that allows us to buy the things that are most necessary for the house, food”.
Pulmonias, the typical and quintessential tourist transportation that arrives in Mazatlán, said the leader of this service, as they never face the worst situation in their history, when the destination was paralyzed, in the midst of this COVID-19 pandemic, and of having to live a very different Easter than what many expected in 2020.
