Federal government to create new Metro-bus line
During a press conference from the Government House, Cabinet Chief Jorge Capitanich announced the creation of a Metro-bus line sustained by World Bank funds, valuated in 90 million dollars.
The route will unify the district of La Matanza, located in the province of Buenos Aires, with the country's capital, covering an extension estimated in 26 kilometers. According to Capitanich “it is going to be the biggest metro-bus line in the country”.
In addition, the official assured that “We want to build a high quality service based on a better frequency and safety measures. It is an historic debt.”
Social Development Minister Alicia Kirchner, and Industry Minister Debora Giorgi were both present at the announcement.
