Lima, Peru to buy 5,000 buses

Infosurhoy : "The new transportation system is part of the “sustainable mobility” concept that prioritizes the needs of pedestrians and public transport users.

The reform attempts to cut travel times to no longer than 60 minutes in the city’s metropolitan area. Also, buses will run according to regular schedules, which will lead to improved traffic safety and passenger comfort, Quispe Candia said.

In the next two years about 5,000 buses will be purchased, totaling up to US$1 billion in private investment, according to Lima Mayor Susana Villarán.

About five million locals will benefit from the reform, she said."
