The Yucatan Peninsula is receiving quite the investment in infrastructure, safety and more. All of this comes at a time when the tourist influx is on the rise, breaking previous visitor records. With the construction of Terminal 4 at the Cancun International Airport rising the capacity of the region to 31 million passengers per year, it comes as no surprise that both public and private investments are being made to withhold such great numbers.
Just recently, it was announced that the Maya train, which will go from Cancun to Palenque, will break ground in 2019. A $70 million Mexican peso investment was made on security in Quintana Roo, as well. Now, four private companies have made the announcement of aÂ new transportation system between Cancun and Tulum. Four private companies will invest in creating the regionâ€™s first Metrobus. It is a rapid transit system that will connect both cities and everything in between.
Major Investment to Get the Metrobus Running
Four private companies will make a 250-million-peso investment in creating this new transportation system. The Metrobus is meant to cover the transportation needs of approximately 50,000 people, including residents of the region and tourists. According to reports, there will be 140 buses, with a capacity of 160 passengers each. Because of the regionâ€™s need to conserve the environment, the buses will have eco-friendly technology. There will also be Wi-Fi and first-class services on the buses.
There is great demand for faster, better and more transportation in the region due to its ever-growing permanent residents. The Metrobus route will start in Cancunâ€™s Downtown area, running through the hotel zone, the entrance of the airport and then making its way to Tulum. It will stop in several towns along the way. It will also have buses starting their journey in Tulum and making their way to Cancun. According to the directors of the four involved companies, the construction of the project will kick off this year.
Great Opportunity for Residents and Tourists Alike
Residents of the region will be excited to hear about the Metrobus. As the infrastructure of the region continues to improve, it will be easier to move from place to place without having to wait too long to find transportation. However, it is also great news for real estate investors. The more perks and infrastructure there are to offer to potential vacation rental guests, the higher the chances of renting out the place. As if the Riviera Maya itself wasnâ€™t an attraction big enough for people flocking down here for vacation, being able to tell them that they can take the train to Palenque, the Metrobus to Tulum or any other transportation will enhance their experience.
