Chihuahua state officials to supervise operations of new “Juárez” bus coming to the border

JUAREZ, Chihuahua (KVIA) -- Chihuahua Governor María Eugenia Campos Galván visited Juárez as she and other state government officials supervise operations of the new Juárez Bus and Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) programs.

Governor Campos announced the Juárez Bus will operate from 4:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. all week.

The new public transportation initiative is set to benefit over 100,000 residents, according to Chihuahua officials.

A total of 36 brand new Mercedes Benz buses will start operating this Saturday.

The estimated cost of all the buses and street infrastructure of the new BRT program is of over one billion Mexican pesos, that's over $59 million.

If you would like to travel on the new Juárez buses, you will have to purchase a card at the Chihuahua government's offices near the Bridge of the Americas in Juárez. The cost per card is of 30 Mexican pesos.

The BRT II route goes along Juárez's street, Técnologico Ave.

This has been an ongoing project that started since the previous state administration under former Governor Javier Corral.
