I recently participated in the inauguration of the Metrobus in Matanza, 30 kilometers from the center of the city, and I was very impressed with the urban transformation this important transport project has generated. In one of the more disadvantaged areas of the metropolitan area, the connectivity resulting from this project, with 16 kilometers of exclusive bus lanes, is like a breath of fresh air for the city. Where before there were people dodging cars and walking along dirt paths, today there are sidewalks with ramps and stoplights for safe crossing. I saw how the neighbors can walk easily between stores on the avenue, crossing the street safely at crosswalks towards the bus stops, where they can wait comfortably. The National Route 3, originally designed for trucks and other commercial traffic, is being transformed into an urban avenue stimulating commerce in the area, attracting more businesses and families and revitalizing the neighborhood.
