Case study: Monterrey’s Transportation NetworkMonterrey’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.
