Mexico: 166 CNG buses arrive in the Guadalajara metropolitan area

The State of Jalisco received the first 336 new buses for Mi Transporte system, which are part of the mobility transformation process in the Guadalajara Metropolitan Area (AMG) that provides for the renewal of a total of 1,060 units for the AMG in 2021. Of these new buses, 166 were shipped by Chinese manufacturer King Long and run on natural gas.

King Long buses include three types of models: 12 meters (for 99 passengers), 10.5 meters (75 passengers) and 9.6 meters (65 passengers). In addition, the units are already identified with the chromatic mark and logo of “Mi Movilidad”.

In addition to the King Long buses, units from manufacturers such as International, Mercedes Benz, Isuzu, Scania and Volvo were delivered. It is expected that another 483 vehicles will be added to Mi Transporte during June and July, with only 135 units on standby that will arrive in August.

“Today we are already in the last stage (of the transformation of public transport) which is the arrival of the new units. The difference of the new buses: they all already have their bike rack, they all already have the equipment to sanitize for the COVID-19. They also have automated mechanisms, ramps and lower floors for people with disabilities so they can easily get on and off the buses. And it is very important to note that the vehicles will operate with natural gas and it also has an important effect regarding environmental terms,” said the Governor of Jalisco Enrique Alfaro Ramírez.
