Sustainable mobility, Medellín's commitment to caring for the Environment


March 11, 2019 ( Newswire) On February 28, Medellín opened its fifth Metrocable for commuting. It is an environmentally friendly electrical system which already benefits more than 350,000 inhabitants of the Villa Hermosa and Buenos Aires neighborhoods, and which was financed by the Municipal Administration.

Since 1995, with the start of the commercial operation of the Medellín Metro, the city began an urban transformation process for passenger mobility whose axis is the commitment to inclusion, service and environmental protection.

The city began to improve the metro service through other solutions suitable for its topography, thus in 2004, it opens the first cable car system for commuting, connecting the furthest districts with the center of Medellín. A best practice in Latin America and the world.

The implementation of these systems has earned Medellín a worldwide recognition for its urban and social innovation. Also, has made the city more attractive to delegations interested in knowing and building cable car systems as a means of mass transportation.

The Integrated Transportation System of the Aburrá Valley, SITVA, is a comprehensive mobility solution which combines multiple modes of transport such as metro, cable cars (Metrocable), BRT (Metroplús), public bicycle system (Enclica) and the tram. Therefore, reducing costs, improving the quality of the environment and shortening travel times. All this is linked to the recent efforts of the Municipal Administration to migrate to clean and environmentally friendly technologies, such as the recent acquisition of electric buses for the Metroplús system.
