Guadalajara [MX] - Renewal proclaimed
J. Lehmann - 25.08.08
In a Statement at the end of April, the director of Sistecozome said that around 25 of the fleet of 75 trolleybuses were unserviceable. Plans to buy 25 new trolleybuses were announced in May 2008.
A visitor in August 2007 found routes 200, 400 and 500 in Operation. Of these, route 200, which does not serve the city centre, was the least frequent with two or three vehides running on a 25 minute headway. Route 600 was not being operated, because of vehicle shortage, whilst most of the wiring of former route 300 has been removed.
The Suspension of Service on route 600 (Calzada Independencia) has become a permanent closure. It is being replaced by a reserved-lane busway, to be worked by diesel buses.
