Case study: Monterrey’s Transportation Network
5 September 2016 • Author(s): Sepura
Monterrey’s fast developing and complex transport infrastructure has many communication challenges. Teltronic’s complete communication solutions have been deployed to solve these challenges, and reinforce the delivery of a safe and efficient system.
Monterrey is the capital of the state of Nuevo León, Mexico, and home to nearly 4.6 million people. It has a wide range of public transport systems: over 4 million journeys are made every day, 13% of which are made on the Metrorrey network – around 520,000 trips each weekday.
The Metrorrey network – the Sistema de Transporte Colectivo Metrorrey – comprises three metro lines, including one under construction, as well as:
- TransMetro (Bus Rapid Transit system – BRT – with free transfer to the Metro)
- Metrobus (conventional buses, included within the metro’s integrated tariff)
- MetroEnlace (suburban buses, included within the metro’s integrated tariff)
- DIF Circuit (special buses for people with disabilities)
- Ecovía (BRT funded by public-private investment and operated by Metrorrey)
As the metro network grows, so the complementary transport networks expand: new bus routes are added to feed new or extended metro lines, gradually extending coverage across the city.
