Cancun, Q.R. — A city council meeting regarding transportation issues for Cancun has resulted in an favored vote for the creation of exclusive lanes in the city.
Mara Lezama, mayor of Benito Juárez explained “The result is in favor of lanes for public service, which will come to improve the quality of life for all.
“It is historic and we are working toward social justice for the Benito Juárez people,” she added.
Lezama pointed out that this initiative is based on the demand of citizens in general to improve the issue of mobility and order in the public transportation system for Cancun. One of the new changes will be the addition of corredores, which will offer exclusive and confined public transport lanes for bus routes in the city.
She says that there will be three new corredores, Kabah, Hotel Zone and Tulum that will service the more than 182,000 public transport users per day with infrastructure consisting of approximately 94.3 kilometers of confined lanes in both directions.
Lezama says that there are approximately 118 stations with an approximate vehicle fleet of 191 buses noting that the Kabah Corridor will connect important residential areas of high population density and commercial areas. She says that since this avenue has important attraction points, it will be the first stage implemented this year.
In a second stage, the corridors Hotel Zone and Tulum will also be created beginning with Avenida Kabah on the corner of Arco Norte, carrying on to Cobá Avenue and Xcaret Avenue passing Boulevard Kukulcán and ending at kilometer 25.
This new corridor will give attention to the Hotel Zone, especially to the personnel that work in the zone, while the Tulum corridor will begin on the avenue with 154th street and end on Kabah Avenue where the road distributor is located.
