Screen_Shot_2017-07-25_at_8.07.49_PMLast week we reported on the new bus regulations that were implemented by Mexican authorities involving the relocation of Belizean buses from the new market in Chetumal, Quintana Roo, to the old parking area for the ADO buses. As we had told you, the new protocols were agreed upon during a special meeting held on July 14th which was spearheaded by the transport department in Chetumal along with municipal authorities in the presence of Belizean Bus Operators and owners.


But while the aim of such new regulations were established in an effort to make traffic management in Chetumal more systematic and to keep commuters safe whilst visiting Mexican territory, it has created negative impacts on Chetumal’s economy as tenants and business owners who operate near the new terminal and its surrounding areas have seen a drastic decline in sales.


According to Mexican media “Notivision Peninsular”, sales have been down by more than 70% in that particular area as the new bus location is situated at a long distance away from the new market. During an interview with Notivision, several tenants voiced out their opinions indicating that the decision was made without their consultation and are tonight asking that the decision be reconsidered.


The new regulations came into effect on Saturday July 15th.
