Leandro Méndez Peña, director of Transportation in Havana, explained at a meeting of the Government of the territory that they will incorporate, to the urban buses that now work, another 286 additional means of school buses and different institutions and organizations, as part of the strategy to alleviate the situation in this area.

Reinaldo García Zapata, governor of the capital, demanded to seek the greatest possible organization and efficiency of these vehicles, to offer better benefits to passengers, Tribuna de La Habana reported.

The newspaper detailed that electric tricycle routes will be expanded in the municipality of Boyeros, and that a similar system is being studied for Guanabacoa.

Havana has the lowest technical readiness coefficient in the last ten years, Marta Oramas Rivero, First Deputy Minister of Transportation, had pointed out.

Until last month, the Provincial Transport Company of Havana, the main operator, had only 442 means in operation, transporting more than 580,000 people daily, a figure that is far from the 780 buses scheduled three years ago, with 20% of reserve, according to ACN.

To reduce the impact of the complex scenario, almost 60 organizational, control and communication measures were drawn up to maintain the vitality of transport in the capital, especially during peak hours.
