Playa del Carmen, Q.R. – The local taxi union for Solidarity, Lázaro Cárdenas del Rio, will be implementing a new system for urban transportation routes in January of next year.
Jesús Pastor Martín Medina, union secretary, says that colectivo routes will be distinguished by colors and that all colectivos will end their destination in the city center. As it is now, there is no way to distinguish the route of a colectivo aside from the writing on the windshield. He explained that the results of a study showed that colectivos would generate more tours and save time from a new system. New routes will likely be added and divided into the colonies.
The union says that a public campaign will begin sometime in January to inform people on the new routes and color system. They say that they are still working on the project with local authorities in regard to the logistics of the development of new routes.
