Planned new Metro bus project linking Cancun and Tulum

To meet growing passenger demand, four local bus companies have joined forces with plans to offer a new Metro bus service linking Cancun and Tulum. They will operate a new fleet of larger buses that are 16 to 18 meters long. The vehicles are articulated and have two compartments with a capacity of up to 160 passengers, Wi-Fi and comfortable seating.

The metro buses will cover the Cancun-Tulum route and some will go through the Hotel Zone before continuing to the Airport junction and south along Highway 307. There will be designated stops in major Riviera Maya towns. They will be a convenient transportation option for visitors and people who work in the Riviera Maya and may help reduce the number of cars on the road.

The buses run on natural gas and meet environmental standards on vehicle emissions. The initial investment is $250 million pesos for a fleet of 100 buses based in Cancun and 40 in Tulum.

The service is set to begin later this year although no date has been given.
