For this public transport must provide a competitive suited to the mobility needs of its citizens system. The variety of networks and operators, public and private, requires an organization of public transport where the presence of a coordinating body of public transport is a cornerstone.

This strategy is contributing to sustainable mobility in the region, where users take advantage of a large public transport networks have channeled more than 1.500 million trips, with a suitable level of quality and adequate conditions of unrestricted mobility.
