Electromobility is a great step toward sustainability, especially in large cities, as it emits less pollution and noise.
Juan Carlos Abascal, Mobility Solutions Director at LATAM MOBILITY, stated that public transportation is made up of efficient solutions that allow for transporting a higher quantity of people with less energy. Public transportation also contributes to reducing the impact on the planet’s carbon footprint.
Currently, the company is working actively with the government of Mexico City in terms of electromobility, as it has 10 units operating on Line 3 of the Metrobús. These units will reduce approximately 40 tons of CO2 over the next decade.
“By the end of 2022, MOBILITY ADO will have 50 new units available for Line 3 of the Metrobús,” Abascal added.
Additionally, the company has integrated several electromobility systems to transition toward systems that will cover the transportation necessities of the city.
“We are facing many interesting challenges. We’re participating in many initiatives and integrated proposals, even for those who don’t specifically plan to integrate electromobility into their transportation systems.”
For example, MOBILITY ADO has projects with the government of Puebla government to transition to a natural gas-powered transportation system. Likewise, in Querétaro, 60% of the fleet uses natural gas, though the plan is to transition to electromobility. And, in Mérida, Yucatán MOBILITY ADO is part of the “Periférico” transportation route. This state-of-the-art, fully pre-paid system offers wheelchair accessibility and bicycle racks.
Internationally, in Central America, MOBILITY ADO has begun talks with the Guatemalan and Costa Rican authorities to offer Integrated electromobility systems. It sees opportunities to continue with helpful initiatives on this subject.
Finally, Spain and Mexico lead the list of countries where MOBILITY ADO seeks to evaluate and operate these mobility solutions. These solutions seek to slow down climate change and promote the usage of both electric and hybrid vehicles.
