Cancun, Q.R. — Autobuses de Oriente (ADO) says they are interested in operating the Maya Train once it is up and running.
ADO regional manager, Julio Garcia Flores, says the company has analyzed the project and has it within its plans to operate the train system once the Quintana Roo section is in operation. He says ADO has been monitoring its progress and are waiting for the operation tenders to be sent out adding that they are in the business of mobility.
“We are dedicated to the business of mobility so all projects, like this one interest us. We are attentive to the progress of it,” he noted.
He explained that they are following up on the project that has been proposed by the federal government and extended to them, an interest to operate, this being something that is within the business plan.
Garcia Flores also said that ADO is interested in the proposed light rail system for Cancun and will continue to monitor the progress of that project, which if developed, would leave the Cancun International Airport.
He said that ADO has seen a climb in traveler figures, with an increase in December of four percent.
The Maya Train project includes Yucatan, Campeche, Quintana Roo, Chiapas and Tabasco with a total of 15 stations.
