Provide the public passenger transportation service exclusively with high-reliability trolley buses, on confined lanes in Eje Central, thus contributing to the policy of the city government to build an ecological corridor
that generates tangible benefits for people moving on this road
The intention is to contribute to combat climate change by reducing GHG and contaminant emissions generated by public passenger transportation, by replacing obsolete medium and low-capacity units by high-capacity buses and with state-of the art technology, to obtain improvements in air quality, health conditions and quality of life. This
addressing the public passenger transportation needs along the main
transportation corridors of the city, providing a system that decreases
travel times and improves the quality of current services. Also, it also seeks to give priority to public passenger transportation, replacing current schemes by a high-capacity intensive service and equipped with infrastructure for efficient operation and accessible to any user.
Improve, in terms of coverage and quality, the attention to social demonstrations
on public roads in Mexico City, in order to reduce impacts on mobility and the environment. Since the creation of the Urban Coexistence Specialized Unit (UECU) in
2007, which aims to reduce the time of attention to social demonstrations
that occur on public roads, through the creation of five corridors (Reforma Corridor, South area Corridor, North area Corridor, East Corridor, West Corridor), the time of attention has been reduced in 50% (from 40 min. to 20 min. in average for the time of arrival of personal with
attention proposal), the time it takes for personnel of the DGCPyASyC
to move to the conflict place

Save electric power during operation of trains by reducing the guide bar supply voltage, taking advantage of the electric power generated by trains during braking; modification of typical running parameters during the drive phase of trains on the routes from one station to another; optimization of service polygons maintaining the balance between supply and demand, in addition to safety and efficiency levels in the service. Also, upgrade the traction-braking system of the batch of 25 MP-82 model trains in Line 8. This is accomplished by replacing the existing system by a new system with microprocessor- based control equipment and power electronics based on insulated gate bipolar transistors (IGBTs).Read More Read Less

by replacement of low efficiency electromechanical equipments (20 to
50 years old). Operation of generator sets has been ensured in order to
cover electric power outages of the supply company, thus preventing
possible flooding; failures were corrected in regulation gate systems.
Also, this allowed to stop payment for penalizations and fines imposed
by the electric power supply company, by correcting the power factor

Increase bike intermodality. This intermodality will be promoted mainly with the public transportation network through an efficient
transportation alternative. This system allows having a bike available in different bicycle stations
in the origin-destination, supporting more efficient trips by users by generating a faster and economic mobility option. This
contributes to increased bicycle trips in the city. Providing the city with an individual efficient
and non-polluting transportation alternative helps to reduce
the distance of trips made in polluting transportations options, in the medium and long term.
Service innovation in Circuito Bicentenario with high-technology units,
represents providing the public transportation service with a modern,
more efficient vehicle fleet, and significantly less polluting, as well as meeting the safety and comfort requirements, making this transportation means attractive for the city.

The Mexico City Government will promote modernization of the
vehicle fleet for public and franchised passenger transportation, and will establish mechanisms to organize and regulate the taxi
service. Through this program, microbuses that offer the franchised public passenger transportation service in Mexico City are replaced by new buses with new technologies to reduce pollutant emissions.

Over the years, the main concern of the city government has been encouraging a separate
collection process with public participation to consolidate the environmental impact, together
with the use of waste that avoids or decreases gradually the final disposal in landfill cells, usingtechnologies for organic waste recovery and recyclable or reusable products. The Ministry of Works and Services through the General Department of Urban Services, has
been the Administrative Unit responsible for the operation and maintenance of the Bordo
Poniente Landfill Stage IV; however, this space served its useful life in December 19, 2011,
therefore, from this date, urban solid waste generated in Mexico City is sent for final disposal
to authorized sites in the State of Mexico.

The purpose of the program is to maintain the vehicle fleet of Mexico City and the metropolitan zone in optimum conditions, through semiannual inspection of contaminant emissions, to achieve an adequate energy and environmental performance. Vehicle verification has been strengthened applying more stringent
emission limits for gasoline units in circulation since year 2007, and from July 2008, with a new procedure and new emission limits for diesel-powered units. In addition to the semi-annual update of the Vehicle Verification Program, work has been carried out on the development of new vehicle verification equipment, where the software and hardware will allow to maintain better control, both in the vehicle verification process as well as with the actors involved in it, such as equipment vendors, owners of verification centers, and verification technicians. Replacement of equipment began in the second half of 2011, and operation of all verification centers with the new equipment is expected on July 2012 (GDF-09).
