Mexico City has opted for electric mobility and its inhabitants are beginning to adopt it little by little.
It’s worth mentioning that this kind of mobility is apparent in several transportation services across Mexico City: the Metro, Metrobús, Trolebús, private scooters, and electric bikes, which are used by thousands of users every day.
Are you convinced that electromobility is here to stay?
