Although their operation is not endorsed in the Mobility and Transport Law, motorcycle taxis can continue if they accept a regulation, if they provide service only within subdivisions and if they do not circulate on avenues, confirmed the Government of Jalisco.
It was indicated that they have a presence in housing developments where, due to their characteristics, trucks cannot arrive, such as Santa Fe and Chulavista, in Tlajomulco, although they have proliferated in all types of neighborhoods.
After last week’s demonstration in which motorcycle taxi drivers blocked López Mateos, the governor stressed that they must understand that there will be regulations and operations to remove those who do not comply. “It is a service that can work as long as it stays within housing developments. What cannot be is the disorder that there is. They cannot be circulating on main roads,” said the state president.
He added that since he was mayor of Tlajomulco he supported the regulation for them to operate within subdivisions. He maintained that The Secretary of Transportation (Setran) is working on updating the census of units and the regularization proposal.
The Department of Social Communication of Setran confirmed four agreements for the operation of these vehicles, after the latest demonstrations. He stressed that he took out of circulation 20 units that went through López Mateos and Santa Anita, and Periférico and its intersections with Guadalupe, López Mateos and Volcán Quinceo.
On the other hand, although the project for the South Zone includes that there will be motorcycle taxi stops at the stations of Line 4 of the Light Rail, the governor ruled out that they be considered “feeders” of mass transport. He added that the model of the Service Basins will be reviewed, which implies the operation of Van-type trucks, which also circulate irregularly in some areas.
