Carriers threatened to close the streets of Mexico City this Tuesday, March 7, after they were removed from the road corridors of transportation from Culhuacán and Las Águilas.
It is expected that close to 500 carriers will carry out blockades at different points in CDMX, since they accuse that the Ministry of Mobility (Semovi) will favor private companies and leave hundreds of families without a livelihood after 40 years of service.
In addition, they accused the Undersecretary of Mobility of allegedly promoting support for private companies because allegedly worked for them.
What streets of CDMX will remain closed due to the march of carriers?
Despite the fact that the capital authorities have called for dialogue, the mobilizations are expected to begin at 8:30 a.m., in avenue 20 of November and Izazaga, and in Circuit Plaza de la Constitución, Cuauhtémoc mayor’s office.
The public transport routes that would carry out the closures are 84, 91, 12 and 57, with whom Semovi has held talks with the representatives of the routes with the intention of forming a new transport company, but they have not reached an agreement. .
What did Semovi say to the CDMX carriers?
The Ministry of Mobility (Semovi) reported on March 5 that the improvement process for capital transportation has already begun in routes 84, 91, 12 and 57.
For this reason, he said, these routes should go from having individual concessions to the formation of companies. “With these changes, bad practices will be eliminated, such as competition for fares, tortuguismo, poor service in general, and the lack of labor rights,” he said.
The CDMX unit recalled that since 2022 it has been in dialogue with the carriers, for which reason it has carried out a review of the documentation to achieve the Creation of the new transport company.
“However, the discontent of a minority group of these three routes is due to the fact that the vote was carried out to elect the president of the company, who was elected by majority. A person who participated in the assembly, but did not obtain the necessary votes to chair the board of directors, expressed his intention to create a parallel company, ”he detailed.
