Cancun, Q.R. — A driver of a Maya Caribe combi was fined by city officials Thursday after he was found carrying more passengers than allowed. The driver was removed from his unit and handed a sanction by Benito Juárez (Cancun) transit elements for the violation.
Transit agents indicated that they applied a sanction to the public transport driver for allowing excess passengers in his unit, violating the preventive measure in the face of the health contingency.
The intervention of the transit agents was captured on video, which was broadcast on the corporation’s social networks as a warning to other drivers of the public services about transporting more passengers than legally permitted.
The Municipal Transit Directorate says they will continue operations to review the collective transport units and the urban bus lines.
In recent days, a driver of the Transporte Terrestre Estatal (TTE) was permanently decommissioned when 19 passengers descended from his unit when he only had permission to carry eight. The provision for public transportation units is to have 50 percent of the seats occupied.
