With this news, TransMilenio reminded that the information of all its routes is available in the official application of SistemaTranMi[app]. On this platform, users can also plan each of their trips and see where the bus is in real time.
Additionally, the Bogotá mass transportation system recommended customizing the “Tullave” card so that users can receive benefits such as transfers from 0 to 200 pesos, two trips on credit that can be renewed, the possibility of blocking the balance in case of loss or theft and preferential rates for people who are part of the vulnerable population.
It is worth remembering that there is no cost to customize the card used to access the TransMilenio and SITP services and it can be recharged virtually.
It is important to highlight that Bogotá’s mass transportation system, TransMilenio, has preferential rates that seek to guarantee the mobility of all citizens, especially those who are part of vulnerable populations.
The company recently reported that in total there will be about 900,000 people who will be able to access this benefit of the preferential rate. Only those who have a survey validated by Sisbén IV and who are in the categorized groups from A1 to B7 will enter.
The benefits of the system’s preferential rate will be implemented as follows:
For the trunk component: a benefit of 15.2% will be provided, which corresponds to $450 less than the real value of the service fee. Leaving the ticket at $2,500. For the zonal component: the benefit is 18.1%, $500 less, the service fee will remain at $2,250.
Based on the foregoing, the Bogota Mobility Secretariat pointed out that the District makes a great effort to be able to deliver contributions that end up benefiting a significant number of citizens.
“It is important to remember that this differential rate strategy for the lower-income population is complemented by the Guaranteed Minimum Income policy. In this way, lower-income citizens are served comprehensively,” they said from the entity.
To access the benefits of the preferential rate, citizens must be within groups A1 (extreme poverty) and B7 (moderate poverty) and have the personalized “Tullave” card.
It should be remembered that this initiative was created by District Decree 005 of 2022, which regulated a 25% discount (not applicable for transfers) on the current maximum rate, which is deducted from the value to be paid for trunk and zonal services. of the integrated system.
