Thread: New Buses for Managua

  1. #1

    Default New Buses for Managua

    http://www-usa.laprensa.com.ni/archi...s/231927.shtml

    These are the new buses Managua will be putting on the streets, the project will culminate in 2011.

    These buses will technically have room for 44 people to sit, and 28 people standing, however I expect that these numbers will be tripple how they are used in Managua :lol:

    1 in 10 buses will have the Handicap accessible ramps.

    The numbers to the right, show the Transportation Cooperative and how many of the new buses they will recieve.

    New public transport buses will be great.

    I see in the article the government is borrowing $26.3 million to buy them.

    What happened to the buses donated by Japan?

    They were sold to National bus Cooperatives.

    So they're for inter city transport.

    Wait a minute - sold, like the donated beans? Sold, like the land at Tola bought for pennies?
