Colombia: Indicators of the operation of integrated transport systems [free access]

September 1, 2018

As of December 2017, there were eight integrated transport systems. Their operations have been measured on three parameters: travel coverage, fleet size and average daily passenger ridership. The travel coverage shows the actual and projected coverage. The fleet consists of bi-articulated buses, articulated buses, standard buses, feeders and Sistema Integrado de Transporte Público (SITP) buses.

 

The oldest integrated transport system is Transmilenio in the city of Bogotá. It has the second highest average daily passenger ridership.

 

The following table provides information about the indicators of the operation of the integrated transport systems in the country.
