Ie-Tram in Yucatan: electric transport in Merida
Fortunately, the sustainable public transport plan for Merida is already underway. The first stage implemented is the Va y Ven system in the Peripheral Ring. Then, the second stage will be the implementation of electric buses, Ie-Tram, that will connect Merida with Kanasin and Uman.
According to information presented by Governor Mauricio Vila Dosal and the director of the Institute of Mobility and Territorial Urban Development, Rafael Hernández Kotasek, and the state treasurer Roberto Suárez Coldwell the project of the implementation of the Ie-Tram electric buses would have a series of stages for its implementation.
When would the construction of the Ie-Tram begin?
At the end of the year, the infrastructure works for the new electric public transport route of Mérida would begin. Vila Dosal said that Ie-Tram will start operations by the end of December 2023, together with the Mayan Train.
According to the governor, the change to the peripheral route will end whatever dysfunctionality the transport system currently has.
In addition to the payment per kilometer, there are other advantages. Thegovernment will establish the schedule and frequency of the bus line. It is not helpful to cover many kilometers in hours when there are few people.
How will electric buses be recharged?
In the new infrastructure of the Ie-Tram route, they are planning to build 7 to 9 electric feeders for recharging buses during their journey. “The idea,” the governor said, “is that this bus line’s electricity consumption is through renewable energy.” This issue has yet to be landed, but they may use solar panels to generate clean electricity.
