Currently, there is only one bus on each of the usual routes.

The Transport Directorate, together with the authorities of the Communist Party of Cuba (PCC) and the Government, adopted a series of measures in search of making better use of fuel allocation for passenger transportation in Las Tunas.

Las Tunas, Cuba.- Reynaldo Reyes Silva, delegate of the sector in the province, explained to 26 that among the actions is the increase of inspectors in stops and ranks. In addition to that, "The presence of administrative cars at the stops is being resumed, departing from the 26 de Julio Park (known as La Feria); this initiative had already been adopted by the country's leadership, and was analyzed with the highest authorities of the province and directors of all organizations."

"The buses have also been reduced considerably, there is only one on each of the usual routes: 1, 5, 6, 7, and 10. This is because transportation only has 2,400 liters of fuel for cargo and passage, which also includes the mobility of some companies and the regulated basic basket fundamentally."

Health services are prioritized due to their high importance. Thus, two buses are available to support the sector personnel who go to the hospitals.

"Mobility for medical care for hemodialysis patients is prioritized, just like the chemotherapy, in the province of Camagüey; for them, we have a bus in addition to the usual taxi services," continued the Transport delegate.

For the transportation of boarding students, negotiations are being carried out with the Provincial Directorate of Education to stagger the collection of the passes. "It is not possible to do it simultaneously."

Among the means of moving the population within the city are motorcycle taxis, which have not stopped during the contingencies that the country has gone through.

"Fuel is guaranteed, and an average of 75 to 84 vehicles a day are attending to the ranks, controlled by base officials first of all, and supervised by transportation inspectors."

"We try to give them a certain priority because they are the ones who help us the most to alleviate the situation since they move around 500 to 600 people between 7:00 and 8:30 in the morning.

"Animal traction transport is also controlled by inspectors, so we already have 11 of them in the main areas where “coches” are located, such as the two hospitals, the Vocational Pre-University Institute of Exact Sciences, and behind the Julio Antonio Mella Stadium."

In addition, instructions were given to the directors of all entities, so that no bus in charge of workers' transportation could circulate empty.
