According to reports from the Municipality of Lima, there are eight buses operating for this testing, four for each route, while 16 buses will be used for each side (a total of 32) when the stretch is officially launched. With these new routes, plus the remaining to Naranjal, almost 75 percent of the work will be completed.
“In the south a stretch of 13.5 km is already in commercial operation. Then, with these two routes we would be adding about 7 km, and from the park “El Trabajo” to Naranjal we have less than 7 km,” explained engineer Javier Cornejo, Protransporte Operations manager.
Tests without passengers –which have an estimated travel time of 25 minutes round trip- will be carried out for several weeks in order to implement some equipments in the bus stops and mainly for drivers to become more familiar with the routes and gain experience.
