The Querétaro public transportation system will receive 400 new buses that are assembled by Busscar de Colombia, a body manufacturer located in Pereira, which to date has completed more than 10,000 units built for mass transportation systems on the continent and in Mexico, it has already delivered units to Mérida and Guadalajara.

The governor of Querétaro, Mauricio Kuri González, paid a visit to the Busscar plant facilities to learn about the assembly process of the units that will be used for the reengineering of metropolitan public transport in the entity.


There he was able to verify by voice the assembly process of the bodies, on the Mercedes-Benz O500U chassis, which also have advanced security and monitoring systems provided by MET Group, a subsidiary of the Pereiran company.

Accompanied by a delegation and representatives of the coachbuilder, Kuri González stressed that the incorporation of the bus fleet into the Qrobús system is part of the new strategy to dignify transport, which seeks to offer an optimal, more efficient service and meet demand of mobility in the state.

"In this new vision that we have of public transportation in Querétaro, we do not put the dealership in the center of attention, but rather the users," he pointed out.


A proven model

The first buses presented correspond to the Urbanuss Pluss S5 model, they are configured for approximately 80 passengers, have a low entrance and three access doors, two on the left side and one on the right.

Access to passengers with reduced mobility is through a hand ramp and, in addition, the floor has a special tactile texture for travelers with visual difficulties. The seats are made of vandal-resistant plastic and the interior lighting is LED.
