busesdownAs an answer to the old demand to relieve the downtown area from semi-empty buses

The Alianza de Transportistas de Puerto Vallarta through its representative, Alejandro Estrada Villanueva, posited, in the frame of the Week of Labour Culture that they will put in operation a special route to promote the tourist transport in the downtown area of the city, with the aim that not all the buses go in, which originates an overload of semi-empty vehicles.

It is about an initiative “to relieve the center of Puerto Vallarta and give it a better look and quality for the tourist”, in this way, in the coming weeks the announcement will be made and the characteristics of the change will be looked at and shown to the Ministry of Mobility of the state.

The objective is to avoid that the center of Puerto Vallarta jams up because just as it has been said since many years ago, in a lot of cases the buses, when they get to the street of Morelos in the center of the city, they only carry an average of 3 to 4 passengers.

He advanced that there will be special units for these routes, while the buses that they already have, will be circulating in the alternate colonies to the entry avenue and the bus-traffic-planningstreet of Morelos.

For this the users will get down in a point that is to be defined in order to take the second tourist bus that will carry them to the center of the city, this, he said, will not generate an extra cost because it would already be paid previously at the time of taking the first bus.


The bus representative known as “greens” said that they have diverse projects of development, improvement and growth from the public transport dealer.

He made known that in the Alianza, they are doing a study that will allow them to define new routes based on the demand of the service and establish which should be the hours and stopping points where the buses should collect the passengers

“It is not the same at peak hour in the morning or at 2 in the afternoon when they go out of the school as in 6 in the afternoon. What we need and will be doing is to privilege the moments in which there is a greater demand, and the places where more people take the bus”.

He also announced that qualification courses are already offered to the busdrivers with the support of the University Center of the Coast by means of talks and motivational workshops and especially for stress management, “80 percent of the total number of drivers that is to say, from 300 to 320 workers have taken them”.

Finally he commented that the routes Banús and Versalles are the ones with most influx of users, whereas Bobadilla Villa Las Flores and Infonavit are the ones that move less daily passengers.
