Mazatlán, Sinaloa (June 30, 2020).- By incorporating the Health Badge in their units, which represents a safe and risk-free transfer, Pulmonía drivers hope to reactivate the service in the coming weeks, since during the pandemic 70% of the fleet had to remain stationary, and the rest had very low demand, making two or three trips during the day, at the most.

Pulmonía drivers’ leader Luis Mariano Ortega Vizcarra pointed out that the coronavirus contingency and health emergency brought a very difficult period for the entire transport sector worldwide.

He commented that with the tourist reopening, scheduled for July 1, it is expected to reactivate the sector gradually, since they are aware that they depend on regional tourism by 90% and it’s not just Sinaloa, other states such as Durango, Coahuila and Chihuahua, have also suffered a blow to their economy.

Ortega Vizcarra said that the reopening of tourism generates an expectation that the economy in the port can begin to improve, and more because of the protocols that are announced to reduce the risks of contagion, including the Health Badge for public transportation services (Pulmonías).

However, he indicated that they are aware that the increase will occur gradually and not overnight, since Mazatlán depends 90% on regional tourism.

Ortega Vizcarra assured that the public transport sector has been one of the most affected and one of the most neglected during times of the coronavirus pandemic.
