The State of Querétaro continues to focus on the evolution of public transport with a vision of the future, by renovating and modernizing -with private investment- more than 400 buses that operate in the Metropolitan Area of Querétaro. Since its inception, the 2015-2021 administration – headed by Governor Francisco Domínguez Servién-, through the Querétaro Transport Institute (IQT), promoted various actions to consolidate a sustainable, efficient, safe, accessible and quality public transport system in the state.
In the last 6 years, significant progress has been made in promoting a more modern, ecological and inclusive public transport, since with the arrival of 400 vehicles the average age of the bus fleet was updated from 12 to 3 years. With this renovation, the use of better technology and cleaner fuels such as CNG was also promoted; more than 670 units of the total fleet operate with this fuel, which allows avoiding the emission of more than 100,000 tons of CO2 and avoiding the use of more polluting diesel.
In addition, for the first time in history, the buses that operate in the Metropolitan Area of Querétaro meet criteria of better accessibility by means of a low entrance or a step, as well as universal accessibility: 392 buses have one-step or low-entry access and 285 have universal access.
During the 2015-2021 administration, the foundations were also laid for the implementation of the Integrated Transportation System (SIT), so that the bus operators that make up the sole company made an important investment that allowed to establish the basis for a more efficient, safe and self-sustaining operation with new vehicles.
