Transporte Masivo de Panamá launches Metrobus system
The government of Panama launched the first stage of the Metrobus public transport system to replace the capital’s “red devil” buses.
The first phase of the system will cover the Corredor Sur urban throughway 24 hours a day. By August of next year, the Metrobus is expected to have 1,500 buses operating in routes all over the capital and its environs.
The Metrobus is being managed by a Colombian-Panamanian consortium, Transporte Masivo de Panamá, which won the contract with an offer of $269 million.
