Delays in the subway after it has 20 formations less
July 16, 2012
Starting today, all subway lines and Premetro circulate with delay. The Company will take 18 trains of the six service lines that the network has, and two from the Premetro. With less than four trains in circulation, the line most affected will be the D, Metrovías said.
The dealership’s service is not financially able to afford the maintenance of all formations. Therefore those that are not subject to this security process will be removed from service.
According to unionists, “The Company began removing train traffic a month ago and the firm wants to give up the concession.”
Metrovías reported that this situation “May cause delays in the six subway lines and Premetro as begin implementing a roadmap that includes a limitation on the number of trains that will service.”
“This program, with a smaller amount of training, is a direct consequence of the delicate situation that resulted from the suspension of the transfer process started with a record deal last January 3. Since then, every effort was put into ensuring the operating parameters established for the provision of the service, so as not to affect our users, comply with the payment terms of wages and maintain good working conditions,” the company added.
“Undoubtedly, this situation will impact on users and could have significant delays, but there is no other way out. In the subway now just over 900,000 passengers pay ticket, as before the increase, on January 6, 1.2 million people did it and traveled a total of 1.5 million per day,” a company source said.
