Mazatlán, Sinaloa. – Councilor Martin Pérez Torres, acknowledged that the project of bringing the Metrobús transportation system to Mazatlan sounds interesting because it has to aspire to be a first-world city, in addition to being a tourist city.
“We have to aspire to be a first-world city, in addition, we are dedicated to tourism, that is the vocation that Mazatlán has and obviously we have to offer a good service to all tourists and obviously to the locals,” he explained.
The member of the Town Planning commission in the Cabildo said that this sophisticated train could be implemented along the Mexican Army avenue or along the boardwalk, but a comprehensive study would have to be made to see which areas are really needed.
“Obviously you have to reach talks with the transport sectors in the municipality because obviously they will have to be participants or in some way be coordinated with them,” he said.
Pérez Torres, explained that it would be interesting to carry out this project because the road chaos of recent years is one of the problems that this city suffers, especially in the hours called ‘Peak Hour’, as in the International, Insurgentes, Army avenues. Mexicans who have a lot of traffic flow and that, in some way, this chaos must be directed so that it is no longer generated.
Last October, the Municipal President of Mazatlán, Luis Guillermo Benítez Torres, stated that the Metrobús train project would cost approximately 2 billion pesos and that, for a first stage, 700 million would be needed.
With the realization of this purpose, which would also request the participation of the Private Initiative, it would prevent Mazatlán from collapsing due to road traffic, as has happened with other large cities, such as Acapulco, for example.
