“In the Metropolitan Area of ​​the Valley of Mexico, more than half of the people who travel to work take up to two hours to arrive. Our mobility infrastructure serves mainly the private car, although only a little more than half of the homes have one. Most of the transfers are carried out by public transport, and of these the majority by collective transport ”.
