A total of 84 new buses arrived in Havana this Thursday as part of a donation made by the Government of Japan within the framework of Non-Reimbursable Financial Assistance through the Japan International Cooperation System Acquisition Agency.

The teams left from the Asian nation to Colombia, where they were assembled to continue their journey to the Greater Antilles, in order to contribute to the improvement of transport in the capital.

Before their start-up, the buses will undergo technical verification processes and authorization for road traffic.

Of the total of these means, 59 will be operated by the Guanabo Terminal and 25 by the Bahía Terminal –both in the municipality of Habana del Este–, a necessary help if one takes into account that the state of technical availability of the equipment it has the capital is around 432, out of a total of 882 buses.

From the Cuban embassy in Japan, its ambassador Miguel A. Martínez thanked this donation, especially “the efficient management of the companies Itochu Corporation, Isuzu Motors and Busscar de Colombia.”
