The director of the Metro, Florencia Serranía Soto admitted that Line 3 has cost them more work to stabilize it, since it moved 10% of the total flow, which represents transporting 3 million passengers from February 1 to 16.
“We continue working to stabilize the intervals between trains, which are now between 4 and 5 minutes. The service started at 5:00 in the morning with automatic piloting.
He also detailed that from January 25 to February 16, Line 1 mobilized 6.2 million users, which represents 15% of the total of 39.5 million people who normally use said line.
This line operates with 15 trains with 4-minute intervals with automatic piloting.
While Line 2 currently moves 11% of users, which is equivalent to 2.1 million people from February 8 to 16, it uses 16 trains with an interval of between 4 and 5 minutes in automatic piloting.
“Now that we are at an orange traffic light, I want to tell you that 100% of the people who enter the facilities of the Collective Transport System already use face masks, this is a great achievement because no one is penalized and users decide to use it as voluntarily ”.
The official commented that now everyone brings it but said that it should be used properly for greater protection, that is, covering the nose and mouth.
« It is already proven that the more protection the mask has, if it has less filtration it protects more then we would like to invite users to wear a mask that protects them more, wash their hands, cough in the left corner of the elbow, do not eat or drink and keep quiet during the trip ”.
For his part, the Secretary of Mobility, Andrés Lajous commented that the Metro has absorbed all the users who had days prior to the incident, which indicates that it is having the capacity to absorb the users.
« It has also owed the redistribution of users in Lines 9 and 8, what we see in the case of the Metrobús is 15% more daily trips before the incident than there were in the Metro as well as 22% more trips in the Light Train ”.
